I've been looking at maul's myself. I don't have any experience with it. I'd go with the heaviest one you can buy... Home Depot I think sells "Collins" brand. 8.5lbs.

I recently saw somebody with a very heavy steel wedge on a handle.. like nothing I've ever seen before. But he bashed the crap out of some 36" rounds, just to make them light enough to lift into his truck. I haven't seen it anywhere though, but I've been looking.

a friend of mine loves to chop wood, and I recently found out that not all spiked pieces of wood are axe's so I'm new to the whole maul, and he mentioned his was getting a little loose on top of his maul. So I wasn't sure if maul's were the same like name brands or walmarts...

Wood handle, not too heavy head. It's more about how you hit it than the maul. Block the wood and give it a few weeks to check, then split it along the checks. I've used fiberglass and metal handles and it just wrecks your hands. For large pieces, I use wedges to make them smaller.

You can get small metal wedges to put into the maul end of the handle to tighten up the head

I have a Grainger sledge eye maul and love it.
Just gotta wear gloves to keep it from wrecking your hands.

... And make sure you sharpen it. Like many edged tools, they're not actually ready to go right off the shelf.
