cannot unscrew UV filter

So I purchased a UV filter awhile back, and I've been using the Letus Enhanced for a number of months now. I recently noticed some dust on the inner lens, and I tried to take off my UV filter.

No-can-do.

Anyone have any domesticated suggestions? I'm not necessarily weak here, but this isn't some peanut jar. I believe it's been twisted on so tightly now by screwing on the Letus so many times. (and constantly adjusting it)

Nate,
You could try something like this filter remover/wrench:

Kitchen playtex gloves did the trick. Thanks for your help!

Hi Nate............

Rubber Band (do they call them that in the States?).

Maybe it's "Elastic Band" there, I don't know.

Put it on the filter like you would around the neck of a peanut butter jar etc and just grab it and twist.

If you have 2 filters jammed together, it's about the only thing that works at all.
