    Sorry to say my elite went flying across the shop when it wouldnt darken while I was welding a rollcage that was in a tight spot no matter the sensitivity. This had happen more than once and I just had enough. I went with the 4 sensors cause I had had trouble with other helmets with anything less.
    It held up though and now belongs to a good friend of mine, it was a great gift. I am now back to the oldskool $30 huntsman. Im not going to waste another $300+ for the digital. Its good to hear everyone else is happy with thiers.

      The new fix shade MP-10 would be a great option for you. It is the same hood and headgear as the Elite's just a fix shade 10 or 11 or 12.4x4 window. Cheap too $33.47 bucks onEbay plus shipping (weldfabulous). Think I'm going to get one this week. Not sure if I'll get the fire or the pain black though.

        for 33 bucks you should buy one to throw next time an auto dark gives you a problem!! much cheaper and just as satisfying.

          This I know thats why it was a gift and I went back to the $33 helmet which is always dark so I shouldnt have a problem. BTW it held up nice, worked like nothing ever happened which does say something about the durability of it, just not my cup of tea .

              personaly i would not buy the digital, i like the regular elite because there are in between shades, and with the digital its either 10 or 11, with the analog dials you will find inside the regular elite you have the ability to do in between shades, such as 10.5 or 11.5. what do you think?

                Elite Settings

                There are settings between 9 and 12 on my helmet. The auto on and off are awesome! This is my third auto shade helmet, non have come from Harbor Freight. The elite is light and has solar assistance, so your battery last for a long time(3000 hours).

                  thats the first time i have heard that argument made! i can see the upside of having an infinate adjustment, my older hobart hood is the same. I would still take my d-elite over it though, i think the advantages outweigh the disadvantages (the only one i can think of is the lack of a knob). I can also say that the shade settings are easy to set and stay where you put them on the digital.
