Usually the filter sticks not because it was over tightened but because the seal wasn't lubed when installed.  I've been turning wrenches for forty years , that thin film of oil on the seal makes a huge difference.

Did not know that.  Have always used a thin film of oil on the filter seal.  Learned this in the mid 1960s to do this on all oil filters.
