    Greg, yes this lawn grows like crazy. I need to invest in a bagger. It pisses me off.

    You might want to try mowing the final height first, then raising 1/2 inch for the crosscut. We've always gotten better results that way because the second cut is strictly chopping clippings without taking any extra cut grass and adding it to the mix. It really makes the stripes pop too.
