150-500 Lens Hood

Lost my lens hood a couple of weeks ago, and despite seaching and posting a phone number it has not been returned. Does anyone know of a suitable 'economic' replacement? I have a rather snug camera case which I was able to use with the original hood on, but with it turned around and locked in position on the increasingly slack bayonet. So when I drew the camera out, lens attached all I had to do was turn the hood around.
Cheers
Andy.

It shouldn't be too hard to get a replacement OEM Sigma hood; the part no. is 737E01

Unfortunately, it looks like Sigma UK doesn't do any direct sales, but searching around the Web for the specific part no. should bring up some results

i`ve got one of these. they`re metal as opposed to plastic, but only half the size of the original sigma item.

Doh! Now I managed to lose mine too! So I need to follow my own advice. The price of a Sigma replacement is 30+ which is outrageous for a bit of plastic.
