    I finally got the camera out again a couple weeks ago. So here is a pic of stripes from my 48" Hustler SWB. This was the first cut of the season on this yard. blue grass cut at 2.5 inches.

    2.5"? Jesus we never cut under 3". All of our lawns grow so fast that we end up cutting at around 3.5" because any less than that they turn yellow and leave a mess. By the way the stripes look great!

    What type of strip kit on that if any? They look well defined.

    Thanks for the compliments guys. No stripe kit just healthy turf and the light was at the right angle. I do have double blades on the mower. Only cut at 2.5 the first cut or two then start raising it to 3 or 3.5. until final fall cleanup. My mowers are all set at 3" 90% of the time.

    Here's a pic of the same yard from a couple of years ago when I was using the 36" lesco. same section different angle.
