    As an x-Golf Course greenskeeper... Striping grass depends on two things, sun direction as ur looking at it, and the type of grass your cutting.
    the key to getting nice stright lines is picking a spot on the other side and dont look down. think of it as you aiming your gun, dont move your head or eyes. trust your spot that your looking at once you get the first pass made your golden.

    not too bad.. Make yourself a little roller kit for the rear. Just make sure it doesnt get in the way of your walking.

    Those aren't stripes. Those are wheel marks.

    Yes the wheel marks show more(more weight on the grass). But I can see stripes also.

    Why do 21 stripes fade from left to right? I don't use a 21 so I don't know, just asking.
