    Have to agree with the other above, I used while for a while a good holder, but I personally prefer the Bernard short stub holder.

    I really like them, but also like the bernard short stub. Think I'd be buying a short stub again next time

    I have one similar to the esab & it has been transferred between several welders every time I upgrade, so you could say I like them. ;) I have tried other types but I prefer the esab. The rubber handle means you don't need a death grip on it so less fatigue & the slim body helps getting into tight spaces.

    BTW they are known as Myking type electrode holders & are available in different makes, not just esab, though those esabs are well priced. I would advise you to physically try one out, the cheaper ones might not be as well made or as nice to use.

    Can see them being a good bit of kit, lightweight and flexible, alas not really my cup of tea, prefer the spring loaded crocodile jaw type myself

    I just got a new handy 300. Nice bit of kit for £12.

    Plenty of brass in it.
