Thanks Bill. I suppose I was aware of the rotation problem when used in a square filter system with ND grads, but I hadn't really thought about it. And yes, the Lee option is fairly pricey.

Since I'm going away in a couple of days, I think I'll just have to get what I can as a stop-gap solution, so it will be something inexpensive. After that, I should have more time to consider the best solution for me. I'll also take a look at Heliopan too - I don't think I've looked at any of their products yet.

You may also want to look into the Cokin Z-Pro holder as a cheaper short term solution. Darwin Wiggett uses this in conjunction with a round polariser that has a serated edge which allows rotation independent from the holder and other filters. His polariser is by Singh Ray, so very expensive anf probably only available in th US. Cokin may make something similar.
The Cokin holder will allow Lee grads, but the Lee holder may not accept a slot-round polariser as the slots are quite narrow.
