    What is the best blade that doesn't clump in wet/thick/long grass? Or...............is clumping in wet/thick/long grass just par for the course?

    I like notched foil blades in the spring. There are many factors involved when it comes to clumping. Keep your rpms set correctly, keep the spindles greases, deck clean, mow a bit slower, cutting height etc..

    Try the MEG MO blades. No clumping but clippings may show on turf.

    Run double blades at highest RPM. Then mow slow. The only time your going to get major clumps is in the wet.
