I bought the lazer mag xpress 2 years ago and love it. I did break the idler screw off but im hard on equipment. Its fast and light. Go with an 8inch blade too, my fishin buddy bought the 10in lazer 224 and that thing weighs in like a tank. Cuts sweet though. One thing on the idler screw, I took it to gaffers in mankato to fix it since they are a registered strikemaster shop and when i went to pick it up 3!! weeks later the stickers were all beat up, it was dirtier then when i took it in, the blades are dinged, and i asked them to clean it which wasnt done i seriously didnt think it was my auger and neither did my fishin buddy who has used it probably more than i have, so watch out for gaffers in mankato.
take jrfishbait's advice those guys are top notch.
