    Mine stripes that good without any stripe kit. I'm using high lift blades as well. Not sure, but looking at the pictures it looks like it wouldn't hurt to raise the cut height a little. It will stripe better with taller grass. Besides, they don't look all the bad anyway.

    Really that looks pretty nice. Proves the old saying about
    a painters house never painted wrong. Your lawn looks great.

    longer the grass, the more dramatic the strip....
