Which Sickle Section?

I've got to replace my sickle sections this year. I've got a 930 and cut about 1200 acres of beans 300 acres of wheat and 150 acres of milo. I like the idea of the lighter sections like the dura lites. Wondering mostly about teeth per inch 7, 10 or 14? Some better for wheat but not beans? Thanks BH

7 serration per inch dura lites will work great, it all I use anymore.

We use the coarse sections(7 tooth) all the time now. They work great for wheat and very nice for sunflowers. They seem to wear better and last longer. At least they do for us.
