If anybody's looking for a rod support for the ACL, Seth at American Cine Spec just designed one: http://www.americanc...ges/Eclair.html
Mine just showed up today and I have to say it's extremely solid. The mount plate is offset to the side so the rods sit correctly under the lens on the ACL. I tried two other "standard" rod supports and they didn't work very well on my ACL because I couldn't adjust them far enough over to work with the way lens mount is off to the left (relative to the tripod mount/hole). This one's especially cool since it's custom designed specifically for the ACL, it fits perfect & doesn't get in the way of the anatomic grip.
I talked on the phone for a while with Seth and I know he's still feeling out the market for making custom parts for Eclair cameras so if you want one I'd definitely recommend giving him a call. I know he's also made a prototype for the NPR, I'm not sure if he's selling them yet - probably based on whether anybody contacts him about it.
Here's some pictures (He cut down the rods for me, which is why these are kinda short):
