Lee filters vs NiSi vs Formatt Hitech

I was just on the Lee website where they mentioned that they are handcrafted.  Aren't all filters handcrafted?  At least the decent pro level ones?

Handcrafted means that some thing was not machine
made… may it be packaging or else.

I did have an extended set of Lee filters for sometime
but then I sold it all to adopt the EDR approach to ex-
posure stacking. It is far less costly, time consuming,
and hassle free.

That was a good decision in terms of both workflow and
production quality.

Light is free… capturing it is not!

I was just going to post a thread about how are these Lee filters?  I'm a newbie and looking to get a good set of filters because everyone I spoke to said I need to get a set.

Google for comparisons. Lee isn't necessarily the best product out there.

Lee filters have nasty blue tones to them.  Never cared for them.  Either of the other two or even B+W makes some good options.
