Hi im Dave,this Promax 500 is replacing a very old speeglas apc-v which has done well and still works however I felt I was in need of a larger viewing area and the Promax 500 certainly has plenty of that!so far ive found it to be very very clear and the plastics on the shade unit and head shell look and feel to be of good quality,the head band adjusted very easily and almost feels like Ive owned it for a long time,it fits well and isn't heavy,i like it a lot and would compare it to more expensive brands,I didn't just jump in and buy this without looking well online and reading reviews etc on the many welding helmets out there.

I recently purchased a Promax 500 and it is without a doubt the best helmet I have ever used in this price range. It's clarity and ease of use is simply superb and I do a lot of welding mainly Mig and I have never felt any eye fatigue even after hours and hours of continual use. I would have no hesitation in recommending this fantastic product to anyone.

Garry - VIC
I have used and we use a lot of different welding helmets in our workshop and I have been impressed with this helmet and its fast darkening response and switching speed. After the initial 2 days of welding so far I have found there to be no eye strain at all especially using Tig on Stainless Steel welding. I will certainly consider these helmets in the future as we routinely go through them due to wear and tear but most impressed.

I absolutely love my "Promax 500" welding helmet, so much better in every way than my old one. I soldiered on with my old helmet not realizing just how good these new helmets are. If your fighting with an older helmet I can't recommend the "Promax 500" highly enough.

Nice design and very lightweight helmet , it is comfortable to wear nearly all day for welding stainless steel.The helmet works fantastic and the price is great recommended.

Graham - QLD
When inspecting your helmets for purchase, I noticed that the Promax 350 had a handy booklet on all your products. The Promax 500 I purchased did not have one. It would be handy to have for the shed, where I do not have internet service. Nothing major. On a good note, Your Helmet, looks, feels and works great. Cheers.

Jed - QLD
I started off with a Weldclass Promax300 helmet and recently upgraded to a Promax 500 and must say i am very impressed with the extra viewing area and colour vision in the Promax 500. I would however like to see a more robust and durable adjustment system on the side on the helmet as the plastic threads did not last long on my Promax 300 and to my suprise the same system is being used on the 500.
All in all a great product at an exceptional price and i look forward to seeing new products from Weldclass for my next upgrade or purchase.

Bought and used my promax today very happy with the level of comfort and performance.It has replaced my trusty Miller helmet which l have used every day for the last 5/6 years with no problems,l hope l get the same reliability from the Promax , the price was $200 cheaper but still gave a two year warranty on the helmet very pleased cheers Eric

Adriana - VIC
hi there
As a retired old school welder I still use my welder nearly every day with my old basic helmet, after I purchased the Promax 500 I realize how much more viewing space and more clarity I am experiencing.
with this I like to thank you very much for your product and put back the fun and satisfaction in my welding skills.
24-Aug-2016

Phillip - SA
This is the best helmet I have used although it would be nice to have the grind/weld switch on the outside of the helmet for easy access.
23-Aug-2016

Steven - QLD
The promax 500 just has to be the best value welding helmet in its class. To get all the features and comfort elsewhere you have to spend upwards of $400.00, and then most of the cash goes on a brand name. I'd rather just buy a great product!
