I would recommend these rods,they sure have an easy to detatch slag and minimal spatter,i ran them against the regular rods I use on both clean steel and rusty and id say the weldclass burnt smoother in both cases,they strike straight up from new or used,definately a rod worth stocking in 2.6 and 3.2mm.

The 12V rods I got with my helmet performed as well as those at twice the price. Will use Weldclass by choice in the future.
