    HAHAHAHA, Hope it does not !! Nope, did not bother to try them and just relied on their experiences with their AD Helmets. I just want also to surprise myself when I get mine, LOL

    Should be a good experience. Nice not having to nod to drop the helmet down. Apparently some people get neck problems after many years of forceful nodding with their helmets.
    Is it OK to want to break something just so that you can weld it back together?

    I have a friend in California who has a disability due to neck damage from the constant nodding to lower the hood. This is a problem that has officially been recognized fairly recently. AD will not cause issues, and will last a long time. My NexGen is around eight years old, and I have changed the batteries once or twice in that time. Another thing about AD, they will make a beginner a better welder because he can see the weld before he starts. The action of nodding to drop the hood can cause you to move the torch/stick rod slightly.
    4T or not 4T, that is the question.

    well my old school amthemal gold lens finally bit the dust when i dropped it
    since then i have replaced it with one from phillips-safety they are made in Germany like the old school one i had but not at the 300$ price tag more like the 36$ price tag for the big lens and 20$ for the smaller lens
    so far i am really impressed by the clarity and the puddle is crisp and clear
    I picked up a shade 9 and 10

    i used to use a nexgen nice lid
    if you set the head gear tension not super tight it just a lil nod to have it drop

    I replaced the head gear with a newer Jackson gear. Rocky spent much more than 17 years welding. He posts at Hobart Weld Talk, and his thread about his disability may still be around.

    Well I have been using HF helmet for long time now, didn't had any difficulties as if now. But as you have sais that you are uising solid #10 shade helmet for a long time now, I will certainly give it a try.
