    How does the torch mode work?
    When the Jackson Balder SmarTIGer Auto Darkening Welding Helmet 37188 is in the neutral state (before it auto darkens) the lens is shaded to a # 4 darkness. This #4 shade can be used when working with an oxy/ acetylene torch. There is no torch mode button or switch. So you would just use the helmet in its neutral state

    Amazing difference for a fantastic price
    July 12, 2017
    I was using a cheap OEM Tools welding helmet from Amazon for the first 15 months of my venture into welding. I had no idea how much better a good helmet was. I thought I'd have to spend $250+ to get something where the performance would justify upgrading. After a ton of research and very little video on the web of this (or any Jackson) helmet, I took a chance on it. Mostly because any intelligent review I could find of it was either 5 stars or it was written by an idiot. And I'm really kicking myself for not having looked into upgrading sooner. Put simply, I can see EVERYTHING now. I used to only be able to see a few millimeters around the puddle with everything else dark and obscured. Now, I can see the entire work-piece. I can see my welding table around the work-piece. The difference is astounding. The headgear is also incredibly easy to adjust and is worlds more comfortable than what I was using. If you are running a cheap helmet and wondering if you need to spend $300 to upgrade, you don't. Do not hesitate in purchasing this. Might not be the best there is, but I bet it doesn't get twice as good as this when you spend twice as much. Excellent helmet for the money. Also, Cyberweld had this to me incredibly quickly. By chance, I live in the same metro area as their store, but it was shipped out immediately.
    ProsLight Comfortable Excellent field of view Headgear is super easy to adjust and use Great clarity Great performance Great price
    ConsIt's not a true color kind of helmet, though I've never had any experience with one of those. You get a sort of bluish tint, similar to a Viking 3350 from all the video I've watched. If I get good enough to care about color, maybe I'd upgrade, but I kinda doubt it. I'd like to see one more depth adjustment hole in the headgear. I have the mask moved as close to my face as it can get it. These are the best cons I could come up with. I'm just nitpicking for the sake of it.

    Great helmet
    June 1, 2017
    I am not really a fan of auto-darkening helmets nor do I use them all that much. Mostly I stick to my Jackson Huntsman helmet. I trained to weld like that and keep doing so with a fixed shade. However, I do have to say, this helmet I bought to try out with GTAW. And, honestly, it works great. Great, clearer view of the puddle and it is very lightweight. Awesome helmet from Jackson. Do recommend it for TIG
    ProsLightweight Comfortable headgear Great view of puddle No excessive amount of controls, just shade and sensitivity

    Inadequate coverage
    September 17, 2014
    After properly adjusting the head gear, determining the height at which the helmet will sit on the head, and positioning the helmet inward, towards the face, or outward, away from the face...I found the following: A. Ear coverage is not good enough, especially when welding in positions that produce reflected arc light, such as in a box, tank, or around structures where you must move into reflected arc light in order to complete a weld. Slight turns of the head can lead to arc light exposure. B. A helmet bib is necessary, as light leaks in from under the neck area, even with the work directly in front of your position. Yes, shielding the arc with the nozzle is a remedy, but this is not a natural technique. C. Using a half-mask respirator with this helmet, barely fits and makes the design even more problematic, as you must move the helmet outward to it's max position. D. Design is too tall and narrow, allowing arc light in from all open directions, where reflection occurs. E. The lens works perfectly, two sensors is adequate for the work I do. The sensitivity to any light flash, is pretty remarkable even at the lowest setting. In closing, I would not buy this hood again or recommend it, because the coverage it is designed to provide is not good enough for my demands. I have added work arounds to the design: helmet bib from ear to ear, and a bonnet from the top to the back of the head gear. The 370 head gear is nice, the lens is good, the helmet shape is too minimal. Sure, suiting up like a NASCAR driver would cover all issues of skin exposure, but not reflected arc light back into the hood from behind, sides or neck area.
    ProsAdequate lens clarity, and sensitivity. The ease of swapping out protective covers. 370 head gear is comfortable without add-ons.
    ConsToo tall, and narrow. Also lacks adequate coverage for neckline and ears.

    Works well, paint chipping
    November 18, 2013
    I'm a novice welder so I can't compare this to any other helmets, but it certianly protects my eyes and lets me see the puddle with TIG. But I've had it a week, used it 3 times, and the paint on the outer surface is already chipping. It looks cheap. So 4 stars.
    ProsWorks as advertised
    ConsIs going to look awful in another couple of weeks if the paint keeps flaking off.

    Great Welding Helmet
    September 29, 2013
    This Jackson welding helmet worked great right out of the box. The viewing area is very clear while welding makes it easy to see the puddle. The head gear is the most comfortable head gear that I've ever worn. It also has 4 points of adjustment so it%u2019s sure to fit anyone. I also like how the hood can be locked in the upward position for grinding. I wish it had different modes like cutting or grinding but that%u2019s the only thing bad I can say about this welding helmet I would definitely recommend this helmet to anyone.

    I don't know why I waited so long to buy a decent helmet. I thought my welding skills needed serious attention. As it turns out, I simply could not see what I was doing with my old cheap autodarkening helmet. As soon as I put the Jackson Balder helmet on my welds were immediately better. I can see the puddle and the surrounding area at the same time. This helmet is a great deal and with the rebate, an exceptional value.

    Heavy industrial construction using multiple welding and cutting processes. Shop setting and field construction.
    ProsClear view through viewing window. Weld puddle is precise to see. Filter is very nice, not distorted with a green hue. Sensitive enough for low amperage TIG, variable shade dark enough for spray arc MIG and light enough for plasma cutting. Headgear is standard Jackson and is readily adapted to a hard hat halo. Priced far below competition.
    ConsShell of this hood is flimsy. Scratches easily. I am worried that it may not last the construction side of my trade. Clear lenses are special order and not stocked in local weld shops.

    Comfortable headgear and great adjustable filter make this one a winner for the price. The pivot is difficult to adjust for a "sweet spot" where it will stay up and come down when you want it to, but it's no worse than other helmets I've used. A little dark for torch cutting at its lightest setting, but I bought it primarily for MIG, where it works fine.
