Too bad, I was wanting to give BR-6 a try.
I have run both BR-6 and HB-28 recently, BR-6 in short circuit welding was not impressive, I have since heard out is was meant for spray, this did not come from Hobart but a knowledgeable source. HB-28 is okay but was not my first choice. I am currently running Thermal Arc's 70S-6 wire and will be trialing some of the National Standard wire when it shows up along with the new Hobart Quantum Arc wire. Still looking for a replacement for my old Indura wire.

Don, sorry to hear about your Hobart rep. problems. Our rep. Jason Rausch is great! He is also my Miller Rep. He is very good, just really overworked!
