I was looking at it, but it only goes up to shade 12. I like my 684 that goes from 5-13.

Still a prototype but coming very soon apparently. According to their Instagram post.

I like it over my Lincoln for two main reasons. Lenses are closer to the eyes so wider field of view with smaller glass so its like wearing glasses as opposed to looking out a porthole. Secondly the clear lens out front is curved and won't catch bb's when welding on your back under something or overhead etc.

Downside is I think it will cost a bomb. Is there are market for used 3350's :lol:

That website says April 17th. However, this is the internet and without a primary source, I caution you to take that with a grain of salt.

Yikes. $400 is a little too much for me. My e684 it is. :)

Yeah but sodas they are gonna cost $1000 and have more features than we could wrap our head around. I don't look forward to dropping $1000 for just a hood. Maybe if it had a papr than it would be worth a grand but well see. If nothing else I guess I'll start collecting passive shades
A student now but really want to weld everyday. Want to learn everything about everything.
warning!! Bad English may be in post. It's off a phone/autocorrect. I've had teachers with worse spelling!
