Blade Setup on Exmark 48" ultracut

NC cut-n-edge

Hello I just wanted to get some feedback on my blade setup on my Exmark 48" Rider. In the past I was using a Gravely 44z with Gator blade's and a discharge cover with no baffle's.It worked pretty well, now I am using a Exmark 48" with the ultra-cut deck. I installed a mulch kit with the baffle's leaving the gator blades in place but it seems to be having a hard time cutting weeds?? So the question is do I need to use a true mulching blade with more lift or remove the mulching kit until Fall and run Gator's? Or let me know what you would recommend. Thanks!
