First off, very few AC welders will work with 7018 rod. I would try a practice weld with 7018 before I went at the hooks. 7014 does not pernetrate as deep as the 6013/6011 rods but is a bit stronger.

I think you meant 6010/6011 not 6013. 6011 is actually stronger than 7014. 7014 has more tensile strength but 6011 has better ductility. That's why 6010/6011 are used for dynamic loads and 7014 is used for static loads. Tensile strength is only one factor in overall strength of different rods.

Regular 7018 (that is, not 7018 AC) is certainly much more difficult to use with buzz box type welders than many other rods, including 7014, 6013, and 6011, but it can be done. The real problem is that it creates an additional level of difficulty, which is clearly not needed in this situation.

As a point of interest, AC is the recommended polarity for some varieties of 7018, for instance Lincoln rods which end with the designation H8, and all 7018 at higher amperage settings.
