I've heard people complain about blades losing their edge after a few
cuttings, if the grass is very wet, or the mower is left outside.
Might want to just check how sharp your blade is.
I remember something told to me, and I do it. I only mow in the
afternoon, closer to evening. When a blade is cut, it should have
time to heal/seal before full sun again. So don't cut in the morning.
Were you cutting in the morning?

Agreed. Reels can be sharpened and adjusted to cut the thinnest and
flimsiest of papers, finer than can be cut with many scissors. Rotary mowers
usually have blades that are no sharper than the edge of a torn aluminum
beer can. Yes, they're going to slide against the grass blade a bit before
it finally cuts.
I used to operate a National Triplex machine on a football field until a
know-nothing supervisor wanted to spend 15k USD on a hydraulically operated
rotary mower. The field has never been cut properly since the reel mower has

1. Golf courses have to cater to their customers, so afternoon
lawnmowers running over old-guys is bad PR.
2. Golf courses HEAVILY water their grass, so the tips can heal
without drying up.
kinda makes sense?
