I have a Jackson NexGen EQC with the helmet that came with it. I hate the helmet with this auto-dark lens. It refuses to stay in the up positions due to the weight of the lens. I have tried replacing the plastic parts that hinge and hold the helmet in the upright position on the recommendation of my local welding suppler. This helped a little, but not enough. When I asked if Jackson had a better helmet for the NexGen my local sales guy informed me that's what I have!
So, here's my question; anyone have a helmet that works well with the NexGen lens and will stay up when place in the up position? Anyone having the same problem I have and if yes, why hasn't Jackson done something to improve this?
