RD Lawn Care Stripes, Mower

What do you guys think? I made them on my 48" 2004 Simplicity Citation, my start up mower. I realized the deck was pitched higher in the front and read that it robs horsepower and does not stripe well, so I pitched it 1/4" lower in the front (All of these pictures are taken before the pitch adjustment was made). I redid these after (These pictures are first attempt), and it turned out even better, but that was with dull blades, so I believe with sharp blades now I could churn out some pretty sick stripes. They were made with the built in roller, which for some reason won't go down far enough to my liking (Any suggestions?). But anyways, what do you think, and how can I improve?
