    Pretty good....
    This is a good, but not great tungsten. Diamond Group brings in a lot of Chinese tungsten and I have a feeling this is some of it. Pay a premium price and you get the West German tungsten, but I do well with Miller/Weldcraft. Wish Cyberweld would carry Weldcraft 2% Lanthanated Tungsten WL2332X7. It is a better tungsten. I like Cyberweld because the prices are fair and the service is good, but I have to go elsewhere for this tungsten. Not Cyberweld's fault, as the name of the game is a good price for their customers.
    ProsGood price from Cyberweld for the average welder so they don't get stung as tungsten prices go up, and does much better than the 2% Thoriated for my work. Best for young welders as not radioactive. Being a little radioactive is not bad except when you grind the 2% thoriated tungsten and breathe the dust in. No problem for us old guys, as years of welding has done us in already, but not good to breathe in for young welders. The build up over time as they grow older could be very bad.
    ConsMay be Chinese tungsten? Not as good as Miller/Weldcraft.

    First Time Tig Welder
    Like most other people I was pointed in this direction from Jodi from Wedlingtips and tricks. I'm new to tig welding and did not want to spend a fortune on the supplies to learn. Cheapest I found and delivered superbly fast. I'm new to this so I don't know exactly how they are supposed to perform just as of yet. But it welds fine for me. Still have yet to try aluminum with it though.
    ProsPrice lowest I've found for a quality product Love the case they came in.
    ConsPrice just because I'm starting off and I've got to complain about something.

    Better than Ceriated
    I really like these electrodes. I bought them since Jody from Welding Tips and Tricks recommended them. You can contaminate them and keep welding, which I do a lot since I am a beginner. I have not tried them on aluminum yet, but they are good on steel.
    ProsKeep welding even if contaminated
    ConsBlue paint stripe can make it difficult sliding into the torch collet.

    The tungsten shipped in a timely manner. Works great, ive used it with steel and it seems to hold up better than the E3 and is cleaner to work with. Ill be buying more sizes if it works as well on aluminum.
    ProsGreat stuff

    FINALLY! The tungsten electrodes I have been waiting for.....
    A long time ago I wrote to Diamond Ground Products and asked for a sample electrode to try out, since I had heard good things about their products. They sent me a 2% Lanthanated sample and one of their catalogs, along with some other informational materials. One look at the electrode they had sent and I was already impressed. The finish was smooth, clean and flawless compared to the other electrodes I had been using that had been sourced from China. The performance was way better than any other electrode I had used previously. Sadly when I wanted to purchase more of these 2% Lanthanated electrodes, Cyberweld did not carry them. But now they do!

    Kudos to both companies for the great products and outstanding customer service they provide. They are a rare breed these days....
    ProsOutstanding finish. Outstanding performance. Made in the USA. Non-radioactive. Great all around choice (2% Lanthanated) that works on just about any material to be welded.
    ConsNone found.

    Have only welded some 1/8 6061 and it worked just fine. Hopefully, it will work just as well on steel.

    Best electrode for Stainless
    I've done a fair amount of stainless over the years, and this Lanthanated Tungsten Electrode is by far the best. I can't wait to try it on aluminum this weekend!
    ProsDurable, handles heat well, doesn't ball up fast. Easy to control.
    ConsNone. Best I've ever used.

    Awesome electrodes
    The title says it all for me.

    Like another reviewer I bought these based on the comments Jody made over at weldingtipsandtricks.com

    I was previously using 1/16" 2% thoriated but decided to try something new because apparently thoriated electrodes are radioactive.

    I'm glad I did. I find the arc on these to be more stable and less temperamental. With the thoriated electrodes if I dipped the tip into the molten puddle I'd have to stop immediately as the performance is horrible. I'm not sure how/why but with these lanthanated electrodes I can finish the weld even after dipping.

    I liked the 1/16" so much I bought the 3/32" as well.
    ProsMore stable Can finish weld after dipping in puddle Not radioactive
    ConsNot free
