I have been looking at the models suggested as well as the ESAB and the new Miller infinity. I have discovered that replacement lens cost needs to be a factor in the decision. I can re lens my current hood for a buck or two. The ESAB hood replace net lens, inner and outer, is about $40. Optrel wasn’t far behind at $30. Speedglas appears to be $20 for the outer. These all appear to be single lens per package price, but it isn’t real clear.

I was also looking at weight, and that isn’t listed for a lot of them. The miller Infinity comes in at 23 oz, the Elite ar 18 oz, ESAB 23 oz, optrel at 20 oz, Speedglas is not listed.

I suspect that I am going to have to go to the LWS and try some on next.
