Grandstand Striping

Does anyone have experience with aftermarket stripe kits for toro grandstands?

I can not get a grandstand to stripe nicely for the life of me. Despite that, the guy that mows for me can stripe a lawn perfectly on the same machine. I think it is a weight issue. He is a bigger guy, weighing probably around 240 whereas I weigh 150 on a fat day. I can't think of any other reason he can make stripes that I can't and it's driving me crazy.

I once had a 52" toro ZTR that had a stripe kit which honestly didn't do anything for me so I'm uneasy to go blindly purchase another toro stripe kit.

If anyone could offer some advice on this I would really appreciate it. I'm beginning to wonder if I should just drill through the riding platform and mount a piece of steel hanging from chains which would then drag on the lawn behind me.
