I asked for money from the family for Christmas so I could get a new auger and I need some info. I now have a good old mora and am almost sold on a Fin bore III, from what I'm reading they are 60" long and the Mora or Lazer are 57" fully extended. It seems that 60" is a bit long, so I'm asking what do you think on the length. I also read the handle offset is the cats meow. And as far as blades go are the Lazer blades a direct replacement.Thanks for any info.
