Default Dynasty As Stick Welder

I was looking at the Dynasty 280DX and was wondering how it worked as a stick welder. The reason I ask is that I have been thinking about a TIG welder and someone was interest in my CST 280. The Dynasty 280 would give me Tig capabilities and appears to have similar stick capabilities to my CST280. It is of course heavier ( by 12 pounds if I remember correctly ). I'm just curious if it sticks as well or better than the CST280. The Dynasty appears to have an adjustable dig capability.

I have a Dynasty 350, a couple of Maxstar 200s and a CST 280, all of them stick weld almost identically.

My Dynasty 300 DX stick welds extremely well. Also as well as the Trailblazer 302D.
