    Just thought I would say I've been using a speedglas 9000v mask for the past 5 years and it's certainly taken a beating with the work I've done. Its a great mask but being made of a hard plastic it's not very forgiving and pretty clunky when working in tight spaces like I often do. Due to this I've been looking for a cheapish mask that's more flexible. I decided to buy the parweld TRUE COLOUR XR938H. I've been using it now the last few days and find it a lot nicer to use. Lighter weight, more flexible and the true colour light (bluey purple) light I find a lot nicer to weld with.
    Pictures of my speedglas and the new parweld which I ordered from Oxford welding supplies.

    I got the same a little while ago, not expensive, well worth the money, big improvement over the old true fusion I have.

    Woah - that's a great price!

    (1) PARWELD XR938H REACTALITE WELDING HELMET — BWS LTD (basicwelding.co.uk)

    I bought the rtech true colour a couple of weeks ago, and also love it. The reason I went with that one in particular is the larger viewing panel (100 x 80mm), compared to most that are 100x52.
    But it was £104 delivered and the Parweld is currently £57 + delivery, which is a bargain :thumbup:

    Based on the very positive things being said about this helmet (including by one of the moderators if I’m not mistaken) decided to have a punt myself.
    I have been using a Clarke auto darkening helmet which I’ve had for a very long time but with the chance of improved technology decided to jump in & very glad I did.
    The new helmets is almost a much of a leap forward as going from a non darkening to an auto helmet.
    The Clarke had a very distinct dark green tinge, the new helmet is much clearer & even has catches to hold the cheater lens I now have resort too.
    Glad I took the recommendation on board

    One of the other things that I liked about this mask is having the grinding setting. I just need to get used to how far to turn the knob back after grinding to get the setting I like.
