Have had my HL blade for my 20" SP Mower that I bought from MowerMagic a few months ago.  I have loved the way it mulched. 

Yesterday, I tried bagging leaves for the first time.  They were fairly thick and my grass was moist, tall, and dense.  See this first picture.  Pretty dense leaves near the house.

I really like how it worked.  I was on level 3, and was doing single passes only with minimal overlap (maybe used 18" of the deck).  Here is what it looked like after a few passes down the middle and edges:

And, a close-up where the leaves were more dense:

Here's the final product:

Overall, I think it did a better job than my Honda Harmony would do.  I really hate raking leaves, and haven't purchased an Ego blower yet.  May not have to!

The only disadvantage I found with this mower vs. my Honda was that this bag is smaller, perhaps 30-40% smaller.  So, I had to empty it more often.  But, with the instant on and no idling, it was easy peasey.

Thanks for the report
Great pics to document the fine job the mower did eating up the leaves with the high lift blade.
