Comments: Been welding for over 30 years. CIG electrodes were more popular here, but since moving over to world-class rods l am even happier with the results the 12v platinum rods work exceptionally in all welding positions. I recommend them to any n police or professional welder.

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.
