gator blade? or "wavy" blade?

    I am wanting to put a mulch kit on my deck by spring and I've been told the gator blade is the best mulching blade. The dealer I bought my mower from, however, is trying to sell me "wavy" blades with my mulch kit. Which should I get? I don't want clogging and I can discharge with gator blades rather than put the steel in front of the discharge deck.
    Thanks for any help.

    They both work great, depending on your cutting conditions one may work better than the other, that is why we offer both.
    I would go with what your dealer recommends, he knows what is working well in your area.

    I like the gator blades they seem to be a bit heavier then regular blades hold an edge a bit longer but the wavy blades work better if you put the mulch kit on they give better lift
