Has any body here successfully used an ultra-wide adapter on the Nikkor 7-70mm zoom, or maybe used a rod support to hold a bigger adapter in front of the lens? Seems that all I've heard is that no ultra-wide lens works on the Nikon R10.

Because the R10 has macro "in the long angle", so to speak, you need to first mount a 1:1 element, and then the WA attachment, and then you have to critically focus all your WA shots, as opposed to say, a Canon 814, which has one fixed macro "in the wide angle" focal setting for WA.

The 1:1 can thread directly onto the front element, and then rods are indeed handy for mounting the WA element.

Here is a picture of some mods I made to an R10 for this type of purpose -
