    I bought the Pro Splitting Ax and I love it and highly recommend it. However, when I bought it I simply wanted a nice, handy little ax, which it is, and I had no intention that it would soon completely replace my maul, which it did.

    Also, it was the only Fiskars ax at Olympia Supply. Had they had the 4.5lb Supper Splitter I may very well have bought it.

    Get both. Life is too short to leave these questions unanswered.

    I bought the Fiskars 4.5 lb Super Splitting Axe (7854) a month or so ago.
    I previously used a big monster maul type splitter.

    I really like the Super Splitting Axe, and haven't used my monster maul since.

    I'm 6'1", and I agree that the handle is a little on the short side, but it splits so well I've simply adjusted my swing by bending a little more at the waist, and extending my arms so that if the axe misses or goes through the piece I'm splitting, it will still be swinging down towards the ground and not around towards my shins.
    I've long since gotten used to it.

    I recommend it highly.

    After using the maul, the super splitter felt too light, until it put the maul to shame.
