The XL is not meant to be a replacement for the standard Tig Finger® model, but it does work well for certain welding positions. It also has the ability to protect 2 fingers at once, which can be a significant advantage. I like to put in my middle 2 fingers and then wrap my pinky and index finger behind it so all fingers are shielded.
The Tig Finger™ has become a welding industry standard, allowing welders to slide smoothly along hot metal during their long welds. It's like having a prop in your pocket! This product is trusty and durable! You're far more likely to lose it than wear it out!
Don't buy into imitations. Trust the original Tig Finger Heat Shield®.
