First I apologize for my absence on the forum. Been working my ass off lately, and had a fucked up run of bad luck I'm trying to dig myself out of(phone died, crashed car...ect...). That being said on a recent job I had problems with both of my welding helmets. I have a Arcone X540V tucked in a jackson hood. I love the lightweight of the Arcone and standard clear lenses, but the Arcone Vision hood was heavy, and the Jackson made this thing LIGHT and way more comfortable with better head gear... The lens crapped out on me. Its only turning on when it wants, and thats completely unacceptable. My normal backup for that is a Speedglas 9100XX. I had the headgear break on me. I'm still using this one with a ghetto fix with a machine screw untill I get some new headgear in, or a new lens for the arcone. I'm thinking a backup to the backup is in order... I don't want to get quite into the price tag of the above welding helmets, but I'm looking for a solid, reliable third option in my corral. Bonus points for standard clear lenses, or large viewing areas. Clear picture is a must, I'm making money with these things. Hoping not to dump as much money on this one as the other 2. you know, something in the wings in case my work masks fail again that can sit in the garage and serve duty there at other times. what do you guys recommend? what do you use?
