Im using a 52" Ferris Hydro with no striping kit. Just nice sharp blades and a double cut brings out the stripes just as well as a roller.

Hey if i mowed my lawn the same exact way every week it would look just the same. I change it up every other week to try and get the diamond pattern. Your lawn looks great but doing the same lines over and over gets boring to me.
