I found out a long time ago that for maintenance welding the four sensor helmets are definitely worth the extra cost. The regular two sensor types are ok for most welding and doing bodywork but when using them in confined spaces they can get to be a PITA in a hurry! That HF helmet that has become so popular is a good outfit and for home/hobby work it would hard to beat, one of the few really good deals HF has, however because of the lower quality headgear and shell I would not recommend one for the professional to use at work. While that headgear and shell may not be top quality it is not at all bad either for general use and the lens is about as good as anything out there in that size range with two sensors.
