    what is included in "the kit"...a roller? baffles? on the surface doesn't sound like you paid too much..I paid much more for kit for a Z

    So steveo, you can be no help to the question, you just like name calling. I'm not your willing target, do not name call, OK bud.

    Pointing out to someone that the way they post is very difficult to read when it's one long sentence, is attempting to help get his question read in the first place.

    Lots of folks type like they talk, and it's hard to read. Just like all caps, many won't even read if it's posted that way.

    Goat you could have phrased the ? in a nicer way
    and Steve no need to call him a jerk. So you both get a 5minute time out

    Stiping kits for the larger Z's are about $150? i'm guessing your striping kit for $65 is pretty ballpark....give or take.

    If I am correct the gravely striping kit are just a mud flap type material bolted on to lay the grass in particular direction. I would say you could make a better one for the same or less but not seeing these in action I don't know if that would be right. Please attach a pic so we can see what you are talking about and if you do get please let us know how they work. Everything you buy is only worth it if it does a good enough job that you are satisfied.

    Economically speaking...

    They asked a price and you bought it...

    you swapped "x" dollars for "y" product, so whether x product was priced fairly or not, you voted "yes" with your dollars.
