    Just found a aftermarket striper for my Turf Tiger on ebay that is for sale through Small Engine Warehouse. It looks very similar to the actually scag striper. Has anyone purchased one before?? If so how does it work and is it worth it??

    I have 3 Turf Tigers and I dont own any striper's. Mine stripe great without them, your's is newer than mine and probably stripes great. My opinion spend your money on a chute blocker if your's didnt come with one. They have them on ebay as well for about $200, works great on mine. Saves time which is what you are looking for.

    My TT lays a Beautiful Strip...but they dont seem to last but for about a day. Does the strip kits make that much of a difference?

    ^ Not unless it stops the grass from growing and that wouldn't be a very good business model. Once that grass starts growing the stripe will go away except for where your big tires have been.

    ^ nah, my TT leaves stripes that last all week. on my first cut this year i followed stripes from last year. what you need to do is cut it the same way 2 or 3 times in a row. it makes like a "base" stripe. then after that every other cut do sideways.
