Antlia LRGB filters - any good?

I need to get a set of LRGBs at some stage for my CCD.
Years ago, the SBig filters, Astrodons, Astronomiks etc were the usual choice. Now, not so easy! Optolong, ZWO, Antlia, Chroma$ (and Astronomik and Baaders etc) etc. To be clear, Chroma is way out of budget.
Welcome any input…

Antlia have a good rep, more expensive than the optolong but less haloing.

Yep, very good. The unmounted filters do have some edge blackening to prevent light leak, but I'd recommend mounted filters if you can (I should have done that)

I'd say they're good - used them with a 6200 on both an rc8 and samyang 135mm.

I really like them, especially for the price.

Here is a sample of a picture I took with them: https://www.astrobin.com/ln5irs/C/
