What is everyone using for arm rods today?

    Google popped up many threads that answered this, but they're old. Links to web sites that have shut down and filled with hard to find rods on amazon or Ebay.

    Bought 3/16 and 1/8 welding rods, but though they're wobbling easily, these will not bend.

    I found
    Blue Demon ER70S6 X 3/32 X 10LB Box Carbon Steel TIG rod On Amazon, but for $30, I feel like it's worth seeking advice.

    This is the link:

    Tbh all I use are unfolded old coat hangers, and they work just fine for me. But yeah, I’m the future I want to use more durable materials, so I might look into the link you posted!

    Well, I caved in and bought one. One of the reviewers said there may be over 100 rods... not sure I need that many, but that would justify why I paid $30.
