Re: Clay Shooters

I have a Browning Citori CX . It's basically a crossover gun with a 60/40 point-of-impact (POI) - designed to be suitable for all the clay sports. What you'll find is that dedicated trap guns tend to shoot higher (like 70/30 POI or above) while sporting clays and hunting/field guns tend to shoot clo...

Re: Perennial Rye Grass

I'm loving mine at the moment - it basically got cold enough here that it quit growing, but it's still nice and green. I have only mowed it once since OD on Grass and LeftTool visited in early December, and that was more or less a charity mow - just to lay down some fresh stripes. :thumbup: I'm thin...

+1 on looking for something lightly used. Like reel mowers, there are deals out there. :thumbup:

Re: Clay Shooters

Just searched and found this topic. I just went out for my first round this past weekend with some family. It was a lot of fun, much better IMO than golf or other "social" activities. Could also smoke a cigar while doing it. I only got 12/50 clays but it was still a blast. Wondering what the cheape...

Re: Spider Control

I agree - Talstar P or Bifen (same AI) is a great start. I have also started adding Cyzmic CS to my rotation.

I also like to deploy glue boards occasionally to see if I catch anything. They are good at catching spiders.

Does anyone have or use wetstones and have a recomendation for stones, holder, methods, etc.???
I have a Wicked Edge sharpener. They're not cheap, but it's an almost foolproof method for maintaining proper angles.

Kitchen Knives of TLF

We have a Blades of TLF thread, but I want to focus in on kitchen knives here... I currently have some lower-end Wusthof and Henckels . I also have some inexpensive Victorinox specialty knives like a 6-inch flexible boning knife and a 12-inch slicer . I would like to step up my kitchen knife game - ...

Re: Baroness Greens Mower Questions

...Do you guys sharpen before or after you scalp? Most people seem to do it in the offseason, but scalping would dull the reel wouldn't it? I was thinking I'd sharpen the reel after scalping. If you have someone that will grind your reel in the spring after the scalp, I agree, that would be ideal. ...

Re: Baroness Greens Mower Questions

...I see Amazon has a carburetor kit for Honda GX 120 engines for $20-$30? That can’t be right... You can buy a whole new GX120 engine for $320 shipped , so $20-30 for a carb kit is actually not inconceivable. That's the great thing about greens mowers with Honda engines - parts are cheap and abund...

Re: When to till yard

...I would also go harley rake vs. tilling. You'll stir up the top few inches of soil evenly for better tilth, can incorporate some amendments, and you will get a smooth finish on top. With a tiller you will turn some spots at 6 inches and some spots at 2 inches. It will settle unevenly over time a...

No, maybe just edit your post above and add a link over to that thread. That way people can find it if they land here first. :thumbup:

Sold the house, moved, got a new job with a fertilizer company to put my turf degree to use, and we’re building a house that should be done in June

Re: Pre-emergent

Prodiamine is a root pruner. It can cause damage (clubbed roots) to desirable turf if excessive doses are applied. For this reason I would not recommend applying the annual max all at one time. https://content.ces.ncsu.edu/media/images/Picture1_avBKuBX.png Photo Credit: NC State If you're going to r...
