Polariser for Cokin X-Pro Holder

Hi all, could anyone give me advise on which drop in Polariser I could purchase for my Cokin X-Pro filter holder? Would appreciate any advice. I have thought about just going for the Cokin X164 Polariser, but don't seem to hear much about it on this site?

Another question, do the Cokin X-Pro filters work in the Lee Filter holder system and vica-versa?

Thanks in advance.
Bruce.

Yep....X Pro's are way to big and the CPL for them is the price of a small planet...I'm afraid.

Thanks. That answers that one. X-Pro, the way to go then.

And the Drop in CPL for the X-Pro holder?

X-Pro all the way. No vingetting with anything. The 164 polariser is just fantastic. A quaility piece of glass. You can also reverse the X-Pro holder to bring it even closer to the lens if your not using filters at the same time. The "Z" are a close second just like the Lee @ 100mm. But they are second never the less, Its your choice, buy the right gear first time or for the sake of saving pennies always regret the system you bought into and the compromises it forces on you.
