    You will most likley be able to see a slight line going down the middle of the stripe. I dont think it would look that bad.

    Trade in the single and get a proslide. Better ride and enhanced stripes all in one!! :)

    I use a single wheel and it barely even shows on my type of grasses. I leave much more noticeable marks if I walk.

    i have a proslide now, and HATE it. yes maybe the proslide makes the grass look a little better, but my mower struggles wit it attached. i am gettin ready to just chuck my proslide in the trash and get a velke.....anybody need a proslide????

    Sorry to get off topic but I think this thread is a good place for my question.

    I have a couple 2003 model 60" Turf Tracers. Is there a striping kit available for these? I am told eXmark is making a kit available for the new TT's and I don't know if it will fit my 2003 models?


    BTW - I never liked one wheel Velkes as far as the line they put down the middle of your stripe. Maybe with a striping kit on the mower the stripe from the one wheel velke would not be as bad?
