Lee Big Stopper Cracked

Well. My Lee Big Stopper has a crap on one of its edges. I had it in a Clik wallet. The wallet must have received too much pressure. Other filters were fine. I had the Big Stopper somewhere in the middle of the wallet. I'm very sad. I'm going to try to glue it together somehow and see if it's still usable. I see it's out of stock everywhere still? :sad:

Sorry to hear that. I have a Click wallet and stopped using it about a week after I got it. Didn't instill much confidence in me. Good luck!

BBWolfie, sorry to hear about your filter. Try 2filter.com, if not in stock (you will have to call them) they will put your name on the wait list. They receive new shipments about every two weeks. Don't charge your card before shipping.

I use the Click wallet as well, no problems so far. Is there anything out there that is better?

It cracked, or it broke off? A crack on the edge doesn't sound too bad since it's a square filter. Can't you just turn it 90 degrees and let the holder grab it on its good sides?

It hasn't completely broken off but rather it's "hanging". I left it as is am I'm trying to find a way to glue it together for now. I am hoping that it is still usable.

After reading horrible stories of broken filters I bought this case and works perfect...

Tough break considering how expensive they are and more importantly how difficult they are to find. I believe Lee Canada (TYI.ca) has them in stock.

I have one of these as well. It comes with this foam which I use as padding so the filters don't move about in there.

I store my Big stopper and 4x4 CPL in it, each wrapped in some microfibre cloth.
I don't trust storing these glass filters into my lee filter holder.

Am still keeping an eye out for a sturdier metal container the same size to use for holding these filters.
Maybe overkill but I wish pelican made appropriate filter cases.
