Which TC for D600+Tamron 70-200 combo?

Hi all,
Sorry for another "which TC" topic, but I haven't yet found the information I'm looking for.

I'm happy with my D600 + Tamron 70-200/f2.8 combo, but at some moments I'd just like to have that little extra reach.
Say, a 1.4 or 1.7 TC would be nice.
I understood that in general a 2xTC can be too detrimental to IQ and other aspects, so my preference is 1.4 or 1.7.

So after a fair bit of searching time I became confused and I just don't know what will work and what not.

Based on what I've read in multiple places:

What will not work:
Nikon TC; they don't accept 3rd party lenses
Kenko/Tokina TC; only for FL >90

What will work:
Tamron TC; those seem not available in my country? (Netherlands)
Kenko/Tokina TC; ???

Long story short, there's quite a bit of contradictory information out there and I'm a bit at a loss now.

Any help/feedback is greatly appreciated
