    exmark stripes good w/out a kit. pretty much any ztr or w/b with a striping kit stripes good if your cutting the right kind of grass. st. augustine, for example stripes badly no matter what kind of mower. you only get "shadow stripes". but on grasses up north usually stripe good. anyways, dont go with a mower based on stripes. stripes look nice but are usually unnecessary.

    The most defined stripes will come from a midmount mower (no trailing wheels to mark up the stripes) with the most suction possible and a roller type striping kit.

    Top on the list (given perfect conditions) would probably be exmark's lazer z/ultracut

    A walk behind with a proslide will leave a clean, well-defined stripe as well.
