    So far so good as long as I keep the gas CFH high enough, and stickout correct. But I haven't tried any other dual shield wire so I have nothing the compare it to.

    I get confused at the sea of numbers. Is this actually gas shielded? Or is it non shielded flux core?

    An optimist is usually wrong, and when the unexpected happens is unprepared. A pessimist is usually right, when wrong, is delighted, and well prepared.

    The Kiswel I've been using does require gas. I use it with 75/25.

    Maine OXY wanted about $250 for that roll of ultracore that you have

    It is Dual shield. Gas shielded flux cored wire. Even says it right on the spool. I use Lincoln 71A75 - 1/16" W/100% CO2. I also use Lincoln 1/16" - 232 and 233 Inner shield Flux core.

    The class of wire that you should look for is E70T-1, E71T-1, usually. Those are gas-shielded flux core wires. Gasless flux core wires are usually E71T-GS or E71T-11

    I run 71A85 on heavy equipment repair. I love it. It is stupid easy, in any position or direction.

    The class of wire that you should look for is E70T-1, E71T-1, for 70ksi wires for the basic type. Those are gas-shielded flux core wires. Gasless flux core wires are usually E71T-GS or E71T-11.

    Not all FCAW-G are 70ksi rated nor of the same family/class, however. There are others, which will start with an "E" can then be cross referenced

    The good stuff
    It was always to pricey for me.
    But when I was in shops that used only Lincoln you could smell the difference.
