NiSi Pro C-PL vs Landscape NC CPL

I don't suppose you know what's the difference between these two polarized filters made by NiSi would you?

Please, links:

nisifilters.com.au/product/nisi-pro-c-pl...100mm-v5-spare-part/
nisifilters.com.au/product/nisi-enhanced...r-for-nisi-100mm-v5/

Saves us the trouble of doing the searching.

As is clearly indicated on that website, those are spare parts (intended to work with one of their systems, no?), and one is (allegedly) intended for landscapes. What more do you need to know? The primary difference in models for a single manufacturer is going to be optical and material quality, some less, some more.

Any additional comments or suggestions would be based on supposition, so that's all that could be offered.

I asked Nisi the same question. They replied as follows:

"Landscape CPL has all the properties of a standard CPL, but it can enhance the natural colors.
NC Landscape CPL is a superior CPL when compared to the Pro CPL."

This was rather unhelpful, since a) "enhance natural colours" is a bit vague and b) if it means "increases saturation", which is how I might usually interpret it, then it can hardly count as a difference since all CPL filters increase saturation.  

The "landscape" shows a blue tint on their website whereas the allegedly inferior "Pro" CPL appears very neutral, like other CPLs I've used.

I've asked them for more information (such as what makes it "landscape" in their view, what NC means (nano coating?), etc.) and will post when (if) I receive any.
