They also go under the brand names Opteka and Phoenix, and sell a lot through eBay.

I've never tried one, but the word 'bargepole' comes to mind.

I had an Opteka 500mm mirror lens and found it to be ok when used with time and care.
These seem to be available under several names.
Opteka, Centon, Walimex among others but all seem to be pretty much alike in appearance and build quality.
