Last time I purchased TIG rod online it was from a 3rd party seller on Amazon. The rod was poorly packaged, one end had torn partly of the box and about half the rod was missing. The seller replaced it after I went through the hassle of taping the box back up and returning it. About a week or so later I got another box with ten pounds of rod lose inside, no indication or markings of what brand it might of been, for all I know it could have come from China. The rod I received from you folks was Blue Demon like your website said, and it was expertly boxed. Thank You, I know where to order my rod from in the future.
