Arc Welding Electrodes 5kg 2.5mm (Pack) is rated 3.9 out of 5 by 16.
Rated 3 out of 5 by from Neil not as easy to strike and doesn't flow as well as more expensive ones.....I would prefer to pay a bit more for good ones.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from I would not reccomend these rods. These are the worst rods I have ever bought. Even if you're welding new steel that's been Vee'd out you still can't get a nice looking wled,, I have never been able to get the slag to rise of it's own accord with them which is always a sign of a good weld and the finished job looks awful because of the massive amount of spatter that the rods produce.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Disappointed with these electrodes I'm a fairly experienced welder and used to buying electrodes at the cheap end of the scale since my work is neither coded nor structural. I've had luck with all kinds of non-branded electrodes and generally find it hard to tell much difference between them all. These were different. They sample I have are very hard to strike even with a hot-start setting and extremely fussy about arc length to the point of being exceptionally difficult to use. I've tried them on AC, DC+ and DC- and three different welders (two inverter and one transformer). They won't run at all for me on electrode negative and keep extinguishing/sticking on AC or DC+ - they get a bit better half way down if you run them at about 80A (too hot really) and the electrode gets hot. It doesn't seem to be a voltage issue as you would find trying to use 7018 rods on a cheapo transformer welder since they behaved the same way with an inverter that easily runs 7018. They would be very discouraging for a beginner and I can't recommend them. Maybe I got a poor batch, but I can only review what I have.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Seem good to me Can't really offer an in depth review, as this was my first time using an arc welder. These sticks were sufficient for joining two steel car wheels together for a project. I would possibly consider getting the 2.5mm for general everday use.
