My thoughts are I'd rather spend some good money on a GOOD helmet as my eyes are bad enough already and I sorta think a few hunG on decent helemt is a good investment. Problem is I don't really know the good brands & what to avoid????
Mr ACJ suggested the CIG helmet, Then I started looking at Elliot's Viper range and now I'm considering the Speedglas.
Any words of advise or other recommendation?
at home i have a cig auto darkenig adjust able hemet
shades 9-13 internal grinding mode switch
variable lag and dwell time cost approx $115.00
at work i have a sperion optrel sattelite top of the wozza helmut
every thing is adjustable from the out side and can be set down to a 4-5 shade so it is good for a oxy work
the main thing of this helmet is that the carcass and lens cartridge is high impact rated nearly all others are not so thesse are real safe to grind with in case of disc shattering
cost around $500.oo
