hello guys from the forum.
would love to have some input here !
i have broken in the last 6months two 77mm circular polarizers.
i am currently thinking in replacing them.
i am currently using the hoya pro-1 digital polarizer. no big complaints i guess...
are the B+W much better ? 
their high transmission polarizing models will generate effect  as good as normal polarizers ? 
i would probably try the xs-pro kaesemann model , but dont know it the F model is also as good...

thanks in advance
andre

You will not see a difference. The Hoya Pro 1 are very good filters.

You might consider the new Breakthrough Photography polarizer which features tempered glass for increased strength.

After losing two 82mm polarizers and cracking the last one (no idea how) I bought this Breakthrough.  Seems fine but then they all did until they went missing or broke.

Switched from using Hoya Pro 1 to Singh Ray a few years back. Probably the only filters I will use now.

Some have issues with turning a circular polarizer with an ND filter combo.  This company seems to have worked it out:
