    Glad I asked first, used Clarke stuff before, seemed good enough. Cheers

    From personal experience it can be hit and miss.
    I've used some rolls that have been fine but one was badly wound and caused no end of feed problems.

    I buy both ESAB and Bohler, both make great consistent wire.
