Need more reach (telephoto)

As you can see in my signature, for long reach I shoot with a Sigma 170-500. The lens performs "acceptably" if you can handle its quirks. If you are patient, you can get a crisp shot at the far end, but it takes patience, practice, stability, etc and will never be tack sharp.

That being said, for some upcoming endeavours I want more reach. I am debating a TC and understand the drawbacks, but I have to ask what other options are out there?

If I want to go beyond 500mm, any suggestions? Not looking to break the bank, but I know this will not be cheap either.
