I'm thinking about buying a filter for my pro but I don't know which one....
First I thought to buy an ND 8 for having it all the time on the camera and also to have some protection for the lenses. But then I saw a review about a CPL and I kind like it.
What is your opinion about that? Should I buy a CPL or ND filter?
Thanks in advance!

I wouldn't worry about a CPL unless you have a need for it. Specifically what do you expect to be filming?

I have the Taco 5pc. ND filter set plus I bought an extra CPL for when I'm at the beach or over water filming.

Nothing special, but always on good weather. Then your opinion is better to buy an ND filter?

You're using it to punch the colors a little bit?

Yep and cut the glare on the water and sun.

Well, as 81SFORLIFE mentioned you can always get both, but yes, if you're only going to buy one or the other I personally would recommend NDs over CPLs. I own and like the Taco-RC multi-coated 6-pack, but they don't offer CPLs (yet) and the Polar Pros are apparently very good too. Honestly I don't know of any brands that get consistently poor comments, but the Tacos and Polars definitely seem to be the most popular choices.

P.S. I should mention, though, that if you buy the DJI brand ND set you need to be careful with them, especially with the removal, because they seem fragile and multiple people have reported cracking them.

Yes I know, I saw some videos and they cracked very easy.  How about these
