    Haha, I am definetley very readily appreciative of cool commercials and stuff but its really gotta get me the first time going "wow, I want one" otherwise, takes a lot to sell me on it.
    if there's a welder, there's a way

      I wore one while testing machines at the Fabtech show and couldn't get it out of my mind on how comfortable and clear it was. I use a Jackson Shadow with a leather bid and 2 x 4 auto darkening lens but I have to say.. Well let's just say I ordered one..

          I think the new ESAB A50 is a player --- having the grind button on the outside is a real plus, LCD is an obvious discriminator, clarity is superb and the blue tint really works while TIG'ing..........will add it to my "Consumer Reports' (like) spreadsheet I'm building to compare helmets for personal use.

                It looks alright but before you throw down your hard earned cash ask what the cover lenses cost. I have no idea but they may not be available everywhere.---Meltedmetal

                    Lol.

                    Well, maybe not. I found new love for my Titanium today. Took it to my paint booth and resprayed the whole darn thing silver and put a new stencil on it and new stickers. So it looks new again.....

                    Unfortunately I am not the best spray painter in the world but it looks new and shiny so maybe I will pass on a new helmet for now

                        Yup, I will post some pictures later. Its not really too different from the original but after a year of beating it up, I figured it deserved some attention to get it looking good again.

                        The standard helmets that are black are not a big problem when they get all scratched up because you can't really see it, but the Titanium is originally a black helmet and THEN sprayed silver, so when you scratch it, bump it, hit it with your grinder, etc. The silver comes off and its now a black spot so it gets really visible and in the end you have 50 or 60 of these spots and it starts looking odd.

                        A buddy of mine was thinking about getting some gloss gold detailing in to highlight some of the helmets curves but that will be next time

                          I asked Miller to send me stickers that I could use to replace the Miller logo that is traditional on every hood they make. I did not want to loose the symbol just to repaint it as I think its only fair that their logo remains on the helmet. Emily from Customer Service sent me some and here is the one installed, can barely tell its a different sticker.

                          Got a new stencil for it, reminds me of the old school, knight times type font.
