    Hey l-h-r,
    The HF MIG wire with orange & yellow labels are made in Italy and run very well. I have never had any issue with the Italy made wire and others have found favor with it. Denny

      I'll second Yorkie's comments. I've ran a few rolls of the HF ER70S-6 (.035) through my 175+, it works good.
