First cut Vs maintenance height

If you had Bermuda and were going to maintain at ~.75" with a reel, what height would you make your original cut to allow for the green tips to grow and maintain at .75"??

Maybe 1/2"? I would just go as low as you can without getting the reel into the dirt. I'm a very methodical person, but I try my best not to put myself in a box when it comes to choosing a scalp or maintenance HOC. I tend to get better results when I just take what the yard gives me, if that makes any sense.
Makes sense. Thats kinda what I do with my rotary. Was not sure if the reel would be different since people tend cut lower and there's less room between cut height and maintenance height.
