Whats Good?

Oversized viewing area

The massive viewing screen (3.78″ x 2.5″) makes sure you see your whole work space even at awkward angles. In the world of welding helmets, bigger is always better. DIN certified.

Cheater/ magnifying lens compatible

People need to use different lenses for different reasons which is why the Antra AH6-660-0000 is so convenient. If you wear glasses but cant stand to wear them while welding, get yourself a magnifying lens. You’ll never have to worry about your glasses again.

Grind mode

This all purpose hood features a grind mode which drops the shade from its regular range to a much lower setting allowing for protection from grinding and torches.

Whats Bad?

Plastic nuts lose grip

The plastic nuts that hold the helmet up keep loosening. However if you replace them with steel bolts the problem is solved.

Feels a bit thin

It’s being ultra lightweight has an unfortunate downside – its a bit flimsy. The plastic feels slightly cheap but if you don’t throw it around like a football it will be fine.

Loose knobs

Users are reporting the step-less knobs are loose and rotate without adjusting them resulting in sudden change of shade.
