Choosing a filter system for LB?

I'm curious to know what other people are using as a filter holder on the Lensbaby. I'm planning on upgrading my filters to Lee or Singh Ray but haven't decided on the Lee holder or Cokin P.

Any thoughts?

I recently bought a Cokin A filter for my camera and used it on my composer with Wide angle/zoom extensions, i am planning to buy the lensshade/step up filter later on so i can also use it on my lensbaby without extensions.

What i found is with the composer that due to the weight it is important to tighten the locking ring a bit. Otherwise it works fine. I got minimal darkening in the corners from the extensions, i could imagine on a full frame canera this would be worse. If you use a P system from cokin you should be able to avoid this.

Thanks for your reply, Harm

Actually, I was hoping to upgrade from the Cokin A series to Lee or Singh Ray. I suppose what I really want to know is what holder systems other people are using and why.
