best lens you can get
April 22, 2017
I've tried out as many hoods as I could get get my hands on, my current hood for the last couple years has been the Jackson Balder bh3 wich boasted the highest optical clarity rating of any hood available and was a pleasure to use. I bought the t94 with skepticism that it would have any more to offer than the bh3, especially after being disappointed in the Miller infinity hood I bought, and now my bh3 sits in a box as yet another back up hood. The comfort of the t94 is amazing, the lens even better. You could do a crossword puzzle while wearing it in a low lit room. I even have it set darker than I ever ran with other hoods because I can still see the weld better without needing the extra brightness. Plus it looks awesome, (my bh3 I always found kind of ugly) I've let most guys at work try it out and every one of them wants one as their next hood.
ProsI use the external grind button more than I expected, the added ridge around it to help you find it while wearing gloves is a smart feature, lenses swap easily, the headgear is extremely adjustable, the side windows are great, no more people sneaking up on you with your hood down anymore, and it's in the same price range as most other (inferior) top hoods, and Cyberweld has the best price
ConsI wish the grind mode indicator light flashed faster, several times I've flipped my hood down and struck an arc in between the flashes caught the pretty blue light
