been looking at some work by several lcos. its obvious that they think they are leaving stripes. what they are leaving looks more like rows to me. a stripe is caused by different reflection of the sun on every other row.in their case its their tires that are leaving little stripes on each side of the cut. im certainly no expert at stripes as i first heard of it on this forum. but i do know how to lay dn a fair stripe if the customer will let me. lot of country folks here dont care for it.
