Sad loss of rigidity (macro flash arm)

I was pleased to be possessor of one of these https://www.amazon.co.uk/Koolertron-...MR8P16Y66S0RVX - a wonderfully versatile twin macro flash arm, obtained used very cheaply. Ut is supposed to be able to support flashes of up to 300g on each arm. Sadly though I find that even the diminutive Metz 26 AF-2 (115g + 2*AAA batteries) is enough to make either of the arms droop :-( .

Various ebay and amazon sellers seem to be offering what looks like pretty much the same product, from about 13.00. Does anyone use one of these and have an idea how long they last? May be worth the risk of failure rather than buy much more expensive gear ...
