Really strong FD-Nex adapter w/tripod mount?

I've got a Vivitar Series 1 70-210 f3.5 FD lens I love shooting with, but man, that beast is heavy. I rarely use it handheld, but instead connect a monopod to the mount on my FD-NEX adapter.

Problem is, that's still a lot of front-loaded weight, and as far as I can tell, there's no collar for this lens. I worry it's going to snap off of the adapter someday ... hopefully not jerking around the back end badly enough to damage the mount on the NEX with it.

I'd love to at least find a super-sturdy adapter, also with a built-in mount point. I feel pretty secure using big A-Mount lenses on my LA-EA2. Something with that heft or better would be good.

Any ideas?
