Default HTP CF helmet

Anyone have experience with HTP's Striker CF helmet they advertise on Ebay? http://<br /> <br /> http://cgi.eb...tab%3DWatching

Seems like a heck of a good deal for the price and it has all the same specs as their other hoods in their catalog...yet I cannot find it in the catalog

1ton, I believe you got a leaky link there.

Is this the one you meant?

Yep, sure is, thanks Cutter! So, anyone using one of those? Sure is tempting to try one out...

I looked on HTP's website and although I didn't see it listed on-line, that's not to say it wouldn't be listed within the catalog you could order.

In addition doing a search on the web didn't turn up any hits either, but again, if it's a relatively new product, not much may be available.

Looking at the price and what it touts it can do, I might me swayed to give it a go if I didn't already have enough new helmets already.After all, even as great a multi-tasking welder as I am, I can only wear one at a time.

If you pick one up, keep us updated once you try it out, letting us know how you like it.

I'll certainly do that...I think I'll grab one and try it. I do have their paper catalog from a recent order of wire, tips and nozzles - and it's not in there. I like the look of the CF and heck, I only have one AD hood so far (a Miller) and need a second for the wife to use anyways....

Aha, now you've figured out just how so many of our members get to spend so much money on welding related toys.

Keep the whole family involved.

Keep us posted on it's use when you get it.

BTW, welcome to the site. We can always use one more Texan.

It looks like my optrel without all the features, could very well be made by optrel.

Buy that one and paint pink flames on it. I am sure no one will steal it than.
