so you might consider looking at the latest new ones...


(and relegate that Jackson to backup duty... I never liked their autodark hats.. personal opinion.. but still have one as backup)


Using inverters like your Dynasty 350DX it is really easy to get flashed by an inferior helmet on low amperage TIG

As to what is the "BEST" hat???

There should be plenty of opinions on the best Autodark hat for inverter TIG..
amongst the troops..

(I will recuse myself as I am woefully behind the times on the subject.. my newest hat is a Miller Big Window Elite... which is 6plus years old and still works flawlessly.. even with my Dynasty 350DX & 200DX way down low..just have to replace the batts every 2 years)

yeah, I've been thinking the same thing.. I do really like the helmet and head gear.. I found the retainer for 4.35 and free shipping.. I'll order up a few I think..

Wish I could use something else and just make my own, but using metal in a helmet might not be the best idea.

Thanks all who replied.
