Haida filters

Anyone had any experience with Haida ND square filters. I have thrown away my Cokin z pro system after years of disappointing results (which is quite expected for the price really). I need a neutral ND grad filter that will fit my z pro holder and don't really want to spend the 250 for tiffen

Not with the square ones but I've got a few Haida's in ND64 and ND1000 in various screw-in sizes and have always been very happy with them. They outperform some really expensive brands and I got on the brand when it was relatively unknown and even cheaper.

I have a 10-stop ND and it's ok. I think the coatings could be better, but it's ok for the price.

The German magazine "NaturFoto" published a test of high-end square ND filters some month ago.
Haida came out as "surprisingly good" and clearly best value for money. Quality is much better than the Cokin (no comparrison actually regarding colour shift). Also the filter holder is good!
I use the ND and grad filters.

I am using a screw in nd 6 stop now by breakthrough photography and it is amazing. Better than anything else on the market in my option, but unfortunately they don't make a square filter system for the grads so......apart from Haida there is tiffen and ????

Nisi. Yes I noticed them. A little bit more expensive than Haida. I wonder, when it comes too glass models, like tiffen, nisi, and Haida, is there much difference
