3rd party EF 2x extender recommendations?

I have an EF 70-200 2.8 IS. That is the only lens I have that will take an extender at all. Looking for 2x extender on the cheap. Recommendations? Thanks!

OEM, new, is too expensive. OEM used is preferred, but hard to find. I wouldn't be using this combo often.

Oh, I have an RP.

Wait for a good used 2x III to pop up, the third party ones will not get you anything worth using, even the Canon 2x will soften the image quite a bit in most cases.
I sold my EF 2xIII not too long ago for $280, basically brand new as I didn't use it much
