I use this helmet for Tig welding only...Coming from older auto darkening and fixed shade helmets, the weld pool and arc clarity is amazing. The shade 2 idle is clear enough to align parts with precision and see markings clearly without raising the helmet. I also like the auto shade adjustment, its easier to see starting up and feathering out of amperage as the shade automatically darkens and lightens along with you. The visible color is outstanding compared to the green shade lenses. The headgear fits me well and I'm comfortable wearing it for a long duration.
