I have a 54" MMM for my B2601 and I think it does a great job mowing though I don't have a fancy lawn, I also have a flail mower that mows equally well but is a lot more forgiving mowing uneven trails.
I run a 60"MMM on my BX2200 and have run it for 14 years on a lawn that is about one acre. Once in a while I do a couple of other lawns in the neighborhood. I can't complain and I would say it does a nice job. I don't have any of this "clumpy" stuff the orig poster mentioned. That makes me suspicion there is some issue with your deck (such as bent or missing deflectors around the blades under the deck ?) I've never seen clumpy grass laying around where I mow unless it was too tall when I mowed it. I believe you said the blades were sharp. Can't picture what other causes there might be. You might want to consider a bagger. I have one of the PTO-driven baggers on my BX2200 & they are a lifesaver in the fall with leaves. Rarely do I let the grass get high enough to need bagging.
By the way, I have NO experience with the Woodmaxx flail mower but friends who use the flail mowers say to me that they absorb a LOT of power. I'd try one out on a BX2200 in some medium high grass before buying one. I'm a little skeptical of your power to run a 62" flail mower.
