Whatever... If you were to check Lincoln's website and check all rod descriptions the only rod the recommended was a 7016. I can regoogle and post the URL if you would like. Bottom line if the manufacturer doesn't recommend it, I wouldn't do it as you are now solely responsible and can go to jail for that weld failure. Enjoy your day

I have checked many websites including Lincoln and found the same as you which I already knew.
Your comments are correct and I agree with them.
There are plenty of people all over the web for a long time who claimed to have used 7018 down hand rods. None have given a brand or part number for these mysterious rods.
I don't claim to know everything (in fact I don't claim to know anything at all besides beer and bbq) so I merely ask out of interest if one of these people to please identify these purpose built down hand 7018 rods.
Just giving an opportunity before the bs call.

E7048 got it thanks,

Interesting. Finally we see a low hy vertical down hand rod. Not many manufacturers. I see Lincoln also have an E10045 which they also call a low hy down hand rod.

So to the original OP, your teacher knows what he is doing by making you go up and down on fill/cap. Are you using E7048 rods?

Anyone used these rods and care to comment on how they go?

Reading up on it I see you need to hold a tight arc and use straight stringers only, no weaving.

I am using 7018, and come to find out that it is only for uphill. I'm not sure if my instructor was confused on what I was asking him last week or what, but I've got it all figured out. I think what he was talking about was the 6010 cross country pipe option for downhill and then the 7018 fill and cap uphill. They are two different tests.
I did look into the 7048 LH rod for downhill, and that would be yet another certification. We have to remember that a cert test is only good for each position, process and material.

I asked one of our local instructers he said the same as what's already here. He said down hill was either 6010 or a 704? Rod.
I have more questions than answers

Thanks Bill. Checked with the manufacturer regarding Atom Arc 7018:

"Hi Vic,

Although these electrodes are referred to as all positional, they are not suitable for use in the vertical down position.
