Default Soybean Plates for John Deere 7100

I am going to plant soybeans with a plate type JD 7100 planter and am trying to decide if I should use the 24 cell SOY-2 or the 32 cell SOY-3X plate. Will the 32 cell give me better seed distribution? I used the 24 cell plate last year and it seemed like the seed came out in bunches, dropping 4-5 seeds at a time. The beans seemed to yield OK, but it would be nice to get more uniform spacing of the seeds. New plates are about $15 ea., so I would like to know if the SOY-3X plates will do better before I spend over $100 for the plates & shipping. Thanks.

I'm in the same boat. This is my first yr planting beans with it though. i would have liked to go with more cells, but i wasn't the one who picked them up... It would make sense to me to go with more cells.

More cells will be good, but I don't think it will change the seed behavior all that much. Some improvement, yes. . .
