I'm disappointed. I expected to see a Toro 22" reel mower.

I might get a reel one day. It's funny the Honda has the double blade and I cut every 2-3 days, so nothing ever hits the high blade

Neighbor has a tru cut, but I don't really like the 1/4 inch lawn. I like some fluff. I have a system where it gets higher as it heats up, until it's 2.5 inches by August. I actually end up with 3 crowns and have the thickest lawn in the subdivision. You probably know what I mean by 3 crowns, but quack, not so much

The hotter it gets the closer I cut. Get a good burn and it will grow slower. Thus resulting in less needing mowing

You have high lift mulching blades on that critter.

I usually do the same in regards to height and heat.

This year I scalped it early and got a month off from mowing. Now I have Italian Perennial Rye on it and my neighbors hate me.
