Lens hood for Tokina AT-X 60-120mm

Can anyone please recommend lens hood for Tokina 60-120mm. Should I go for rubber hood or petal/flower plastic one? Looking at ebay, I would say that most of plastic hoods are dimensioned for 18-55mm. Should I use longer hood for 60-120?
Many thanks in advance.

If you are using the lens on digital then something similar to the hood on the DA* 50-135 would probably be a good place to start. The generic screw on wide angle hoods won't do much to prevent flare on a longer lens.

If you look around these sites you can play with different hood designs until you find one that works, then make your own out of craft foam or cardboard.
