  • Question about lenses

    I have read from some of you that you prefer a gold mirror lense over a non mirror lense. I am talking passive not autodark. I have always kept a passive helmet as a back up to the autodark.

    What is the difference between them comparing a shade 10 to a shade 10 with gold mirror.

    Is this just a personal choice or

    visability improved.

    heat reflection maybe?

    just wondering

    Gold lenses have much better visibility when welding than the standard dark lens. Care must be taken for if the gold coating on the lens becomes damaged you must not use that lens any longer because it can then damage your eyes. I only use the gold lens in my helmet (and cheaters). For the $10 - $15 they are a bargain.

      Certainly better visibility and it will more than likely become the only choice after that. I have not used one for sometime now so maybe others would recommend a good brand to buy.
