HPX 250 Mic Holder Alternative?

Just upgraded to the HPX 250. Great Camera and the P2 workflow with Avid MC is really nice and easy. Only downside so far: The flimsy mic holder, even worse than that of my old XH A1.

As I'm doing a lot of news stuff under partly rough conditions, it just seems to be a matter of time until the thing will break. Any suggestions for a rock solid 3rd party mic holder that will replace the original one and fit together with the Rode NTG 1? I just found alternatives for the hot shoe - which don't work for me, because I need it for my headlight.

My old HVX never came with a mic holder, so I had contacted the folks at thejrodstore.com who kindly altered one of their EX Twin Mounts for the HVX. Worked beautifully, and still does on my AF100 (and HVX when needed).

Hi,

I went into this URL - thejrodstore.com - but, apparently, it does not work anymore. Does anybody still makes a rugged version of the HPX250 mic holder?

Thanks.
