Gotta agree on the 7014 rods,they're great for beginners but will also do really good welds. Also for someone who doesn't weld very often getting an inverter type welder is a lot easier to get up and welding with since they eliminate the difficulty in striking an arc.
Tig is still my favorite method but if I do need to stick weld, I'll use the fig power supply since its an inverter and it really helps when I'm out of practice.
I also really like the performance of the inverter combined with a 6011 rod since the arc strike is easy and the 6011 leaves behind very little Slag. The 7014 does leave more slay behind but the welds underneith are excellent
