    Default Welding Helmet recomendations

    I am looking for recomendations for a new "auto darken" welding helmet. I will be using it for TIG on mild steal and thin wall aluminum. Any recomendations of from the line of Miller. I am not worried about the cost as much as I want something good that will last me.

    The basic Elite series are nice helmets and I recently upgraded it with the Koolband for long hot days>

    I also have a Digital Elite and it is a very nice helment but more than what most average people want to spend...

    If you Tig below 25 amps, you will want to be able to get down to a shade 8 or 7, which you can do with the Digital Elite. Good contrast with this helmet , as well.

    I actually bought the Speed glas 9100 with out seeing this post. I just got it and have yet to use. But, it looks like it's a keeper!
