Three reasons for not using a reel mower: 1) I did at my old place, where the lawn was about half the size of a tennis court. Here it's more work than I care to do. 2) I need to bag the clippings (they don't decompose well in this dry climate). 3) I have a lot of semi-natural areas that just get mowed once or twice a year, when pretty tall, and a reel mower wouldn't handle that.
