    My own method for stuck filters is to press the palm of my hand over the filter and turn. If I have a rubber glove to wear so much the better, if not then I have a filter to clean!

    Try a mouse-mat! I carry one in my pack and as long as you can put it on a flat surface the reverse side is spongy and works a treat!

    a thing that always works for me, is something that most of us have with us at all times, and that is the rubber sole of a shoe, I regularly have to use the sole of the shoe when out shooting to remove a filter, it is a delicate operation though, stand on one foot, raise the other balance on knee, the firmly and evenly push the filter ring to the sole of the shoe and a quick twist of the wrist and wa law, works ever time..

    If it is a chronic problem, I found the a little powdered graphite rubbed on the filter's threads with a finger keep the filters turning smoothly. Not too much, but rub around the length of the filter and you should have much better results in the future.
