I am using Hitech filters in the Lee filter system and am looking for advice on what next. I currently have a set of soft grads where the .9 (3 stop gets most use) and want to cover the occasional need for seascapes and slowing down water. I suspect I need a hard grad and an ND but am wondering if I can get away with just one of each. The grads go up to 1.2 and the NDs up to a 10 stop. Would welcome any advice on which might be best. Still haven't got a polariser (mainly due to cost.

What's a "hard" grad?
Quote: What's a "hard" grad?
The terms hard or soft are used to describe the transition (graduation) between the dark portion of the filter, and the clear portion. A 'hard' grad filter hasa sudden transition. A 'soft' grad filter has a more gradual transition.
And here I thought it was the college girls talking about the college boys.
Well, I'm no expert on grads but I would imagine that the ones you have would be fine. As for ND filters, well that depends on how long you want the exposure to be - seconds or minutes? Once you've decided I think one ND filter would do.
