Default Wood Splitting Axe/Maul

After breaking TWO fiberglass handle 8lb mauls from home Depot, I did some reading on the internet and read great recs on the Fiskars X25 Splitting Axe- I bought it today at Walmart for $39 and couldn't be happier. At first I was concerned about the light weight (4.5 lbs) and the composite handle, but this thing far exceeds the performance of any 8lb maul I have used. It split more wood (oak) today than either of two previous mauls that broke and it still looks new. The only issue that I have with it is I need to keep a maul/sledge close for when I do have to break out the wedge in the tough stuff. The Fiskars has a coating on it to reduce friction and this makes it slip around a little when driving a wedge. Handle is great, very little vibration and seems extremely durable. Not a big deal by any means as I have the trusty 16lb sledge for for that...
