I found some good info here:

I was thinking about getting this filter:

Instead I went with a 10 stop ND filter.

I also found a good test for Polarizing filters here

I did not find an equally good review of different ND filters.  So I bought an expensive brand name I trusted:

I may have paid too much.

The 10 stops may be too much, maybe a 6 or 4 stop filter would work better.  I will find out over time.
