Hello i recently purchased the digital elite stars and stripes 3. i was welding a V joint with my schools welder and i was in X-Mode. if i was not looking directly at the ark then it would go back to its non darkened state it did that about 7 times until i finally quit. was i doing something wrong i was on shade 11 delay was on zero and sensitivity was on 6-7. and since i did get flashed that amount of times does the helmet protect you if it is not darkened? i remember reading somewhere that the helmet did protect you if it did not change but i want to hear it from you guys. P.S the helmet lens was warrantied.
