    Looks like you're not cutting high enough to stripe, or not enough pressure on the grass.

    Looks like your blades are dull, tan cast on the top of the blades of grass.

    Could be just the pictures, hard to say without seeing the lawn in person.

    It doesn't look too bad. I know that my Toro has the striping kit mounted to the back of the deck. You could probably cut that rubber and mount it on the deck to see if you get a different look. Just a thought.

    Better grass. What type are you cutting? It lookes as if the grass is just comming out of dormancy or needs some fert and water. Brown does not stripe good. Green does because the grass shines.
