What is the BEST STRIPING SYSTEM???

Question;

Who has the best striping system, and what is it? Rollers, pipe/bar, brushes, wheels, or rubber mat?

I use a heavy duty rubber mat that works better then rollers that I have used in the past.

Chains and rollers have done me justice.

I too use Rubber mat, actually Grasshopper Stripping Rubber. But I have seen stripes that pop a lot more than mine do.

Rollers have always worked well for me. I get stripes on southern grasses and you're not supposed to be able to do that.

The best one is to set the deck up the right way first.
