but every guy that touched a torch is gonna have his own opinions and preferences
i can tell the difference between green or red and the various new stuff. i cant really tell the difference from one of the tri-mix ones to another.
the biggest difference i experience is the modern tungstens hold their points much better. I have an inverter machine so i run my AC at 200hz which makes a sharper arc and that coupled with a pointed tungsten works really well for me.
