    Durable, metal?, heavy duty umbrella + flash holder?

    I have bought this umbrella holder recently:

    http://cgi.ebay.com/Umbrella-Flash-l...item19c08da0f1

    Because its cheap material it broke where it mounts onto my lightstand. I have looked around and I couldn't find a metal/heavy duty one which can hold my umbrella and flash securely. I have a big umbrella. Do you know a metal umbrella holder which can hold my flash and which doesn't brake easily?

    Thanks!

    I see this one:

    http://cgi.ebay.com/100-Metal-Flash-...item3f04842461


    I have not bought any, but it says it is 100% metal. A question or two should get you some more information.
