    I picked up my X25 at WallyWorld probably a year ago this coming January. Since then I've split about 6 cords of mixed ash, maple, box elder, red oak, and cherry. My Fiskars is the cats dupa for most everything except the really big rounds and the gnarly/knotty rounds.

    The guys that "poopoo" the Fiskars are the guys that probably "throw like girls"!!!:p

    I have been impressed with the rigidity of the handle. With my other axes and mauls, if I really get it stick in a round and crank on the handle to get it loose, the handle flexes. No so with the X27, I give a yank on the handle and it does not flex and pulls the head right out.

    HAHA! Trust me dorkweed, I never throw like a girl. HA! But seriously, that 6 cord you split with the Fiskars in the year you've owned it is a great job well done! :)

    I've got a X25 and it's a good tool. It will not replace my big maul or the wedges and sledge but it is a welcome addition to the tool bax. I will probably get an X27 this fall as the X25 just seems to be a little short when splitting on the ground.

    Just upgraded from the 25 to the 27. Still use the 25 for smaller splits but the 27 is doing a lot more of the work for ya. Wouldn't ever buy any other splitting maul, even though its more like an axe.
