    It depends on what material I'm welding, but for carbon steel I'm a big fan of the gold lenses. You get a lot of light reflected back towards the weld (gee, go figure) which lowers the contrast and improves visibility quite dramatically. The colour is also a bit nicer than the usual green. Stainless is a different kettle of fish, and I find the old green glass #11 a lot nicer to work with.

    If you have a Princess Auto store near by you can pick up a gold poly lense for around $9.00, (for the small size) cheap enough to take a chance on and see if you like it.

    I had the same problem, I went to a gold shade # 9 it really makes a difference.
