    I have a 52' mini z and was looking to upgrade to a zuper z or lazer z and I wanted to know if you all thought a 60 leaves a better stripe. Also is easy to use a 60 inch deck on smaller yards?

    I used to ride a lazer z (about 5 yrs ago) for a guy who also had a 48" scag walkbehind. Lazer put down better stripes every time. I have a feeling it's the speed the blades are spinning that creates a better stripe. just my .02

    I dont know which is better but from the pictures on here i would say that the WB's put down a sharper stripe...

    Im not for sure but if you look at the really sharp stripes on here they were done by a WB. I havn't striped yet with any of my mowers but im practicing to get some sharp lines it seem to be easier for my WB then it is for my ZTR.

    the exmark doesnt really "stripe" it stripes were the tires are but thats about it.. im thinking of maybe putting the striping kit back on. but maybe we can take some pics to see what it stripes like with and without the roller.
