    Have a new 260z xdz great cut but i would like a more intense stripe.I have the striping kit and deck is pitched at a quarter inch less in front and it does stripe just not as well as i would like.Anyone tried any different blades that help.On my Gravely walkbehind i use exmark high lift blades and it stripes like a champ.

    I too have one of their walks and use the eXmark solid foil hi-lifts with great results. Why not give them a shot on the Z?? Try running doubles as that too works very well. Also, you should use a roller setup and replace the flap system that comes standard. If you don't want to go through the hassle of adding a roller, get a thicker rubber flap and replace the stock one.
