Anyone ever use these before for solar shooting especially eclipses?: https://www.bhphotovideo.com/c/search?Ntt=daystar%20filters&N=0&InitialSearch=yes&sts=ps Are they optically any good?

Solarite appears to be a Thousand Oaks brand film. I have not used it. They claim it is better optical quality than their other film, good for higher magnifications, and the best film they have.
If you have it, it should do fine. No time for ordering anything else now.
You could peruse the Cloudynights forum and see if anyone has compared it to the baader film.
I have some older thousand oaks black polymer film that they no longer sell, although it is less than two years old. It's IQ for imaging is not good (Mercury transit) but perfectly fine for visual with binocs and telescopes if placed properly in front of your optics. It's probably no longer certified for solar glasses given the newer ISO standard.
I have some baader astrosolar film which is very good and popular but it is not certified for glasses.

On Cloudynights, it seems the baader iq is probably better than traditional glass.
