Tig comes pretty easy for some and pretty hard for others. I learned tig very quick and easy, but man oh man I had a long hard time trying to get slick with stick.

I find THAT hard to believe !

Although I'm "self-taught".....If someone came up to me and told me I had to take a welding test, and asked: "Do you want to try stick or heliarc"......I'd have to choose stick !

It's true for me. I thought tig was a piece of cake but I hate to guess how many 50 lbs. cans of rod I burned up trying to get slick out of position. Many, many cans.
