Im sure there have been previous threads on this but im starting another anyway.. i just bought a 10# spool of 035 flux core and gotta say that i am pretty impressed with it. I will definetly be buying it again. It welds just as good as lincoln or hobart. Anyone else tried it?

I bought 1 of the 10# spools and it worked great. I bought another one, but it had bad flux. I would get about a good weld then it was like I had no flux. It was just nasty looking and weak.
So I exchanged it and got a good one. When that one was out I got another bad one. So I stopped getting them.
It may cost more at air gas, but I've never had a prob. Not having to cut and grind the bad welds off is worth the extra money
