Using the GF120mm on a tripod stacking both extension tubes: Mount strong enough?

Hi,

I finally got a used GF120mm F4, nice lens from what I can tell on day 1.

Since I will be using it on a tripod with both extension tubes a lot I'm a bit worried about the weight and the GFX100S lens mount, will it be strong enough?

There do not seem to be any tripod collars for it for sale nor is there a lot of room for one.

I found this one recommendation here on dpreview for https://www.srb-photographic.co.uk/ who apparently make custom tripod collars but that's about it.

Thanks in advance for any feedback,

Euron

P.S.:

My first quick macro test shot today after I received the lens (it's the dial of a Grand Seiko SLGA007):
