That's a very broad request. Can you refine your request? What kind of flash bracket are you looking for?

I have an older version of this one. Amazon lists quite a few "Flash Brackets".

Define Flimsy. Your photo above shows a very similar item to what I have and also the one recommended. What are you having trouble with? You DO need to keep all threaded pieces tight, both the attachment to the camera, as well as the cold shoes.

It's very difficult to provide good answers when you ask wide open questions. Notice how few have responded to your post (1) so far.

rrs, sunwayfoto, custom brackets are some brands which make flash brackets. leofoto & promedia may also offer as well but you should check their websites.

Newton Flash Brackets were offered as pro-grade products, unfortunately manufactured by a small business whose proprietor died in 2023, previously available direct and also through B&H Photo (now no more inventory). There were a number of models of bracket under the Newton name' with camera rotation or with flash rotation, very rigid yet light weight.
This one (flash rotation) I used with both medium format film SLR and later with dSLR. See if you can find them on the used market. The other brand I would consider is the Custom Bracket.

Bargain! IIRC, they were $300 new.
Which model did you find...the CR (camera rotator) or the FR (flash rotator)? CR is especially nice for tripod work...flip between Portrait and Landscape and the flash stays above the lens axis, for almost no visible shadowing.
