First of all- this is an add-on set, not a true double rod set. In other words, the mounting is made for one curtain rod, they send you extender so you can make the mounting stick out further to hold the second rod. I say this because I would not have purchased these had I known that. I am skeptical of the strength of these extenders for heavier drapes, as there is an inherent logic-flaw in this design. The light sheers will end up inside on the sturdier rods and then the heavier drapes will be held up by the flimsier extenders. The extenders are held together by a small screw that just presses on an inner-rod (it does not screw into it, it presses into it to allow you to make it whatever depth you like.) I bought these rods for both my bedroom and my dining room, and this design worries me for my heavier velvet blackout drapes that will be opened and closed frquently in my bedroom.
That being said, I was pleasantly surprised by these drapes for my dining room, where I have hung sheers and silk-duponi drapes. The entenders are more than sturdy enough to hold these lighter materials and they look great.
I've never seen rods that extend length-wise as these do- they basically treat a long window as two smaller windows side by side. So on my 85-inch window, I have a rod that hooks from the left to the middle medallion, then a completely separate second rod that hooks from the middle medallion to the right. This made it SO EASY to hang my new curtains, as I was handling smaller rods. This was a pleasant surprise. It also prevents any kind of bowing that occurs with the longer windows. But, again, I worry about my bedroom where this design may leave a gap in the middle when I try to close the drapes completely. In the dining room, though, this works perfectly and, again, is so convenient.
On the topic of installation, if you buy these rods do not follow the installation instructions that came with them. Instead of screwing the post into the mounting plate before hanging, instead just install the plate on the wall by itself. Then you can screw all the extenders into the posts at the same depths easily, and you won't be trying to maneuver that tiny little screw while holding your hands over your head.
Since others have mentioned it, I purchased the square medallions and they are about 3 inches per side. I have a taller (but not completely vaulted) ceiling and longer windows so these are not too large in my room at all. I have a stripe in my curtain and curls in my chandelier, so the sqaure medallions with the curving design inside brought these two together well. I find the look clean and modern- not to heavy, not to simple, just right.
So, in summary, I like the look and installation of these rods, they are sturdy enough for lighter drapes, but I am skeptical of the double-rod extenders for heavier drapes.

I've been searching for the perfect double rod set for over two years and am so glad this set isn't flimsy or cheap-looking in person. They are VERY sturdy, look elegant and don't bow. I have a 108" door wall and am hanging 4 thermal curtain panels and sheers. The one thing I didn't expect was the 3rd finial but obviously that's a bonus. Thank you to the previous reviewers on this item (that's what convinced me to give these a whirl). I'm so glad the search is over and I can store my ugly vertical blinds!
This rod set was fine. I ordered it because I have a picture window that is longer than 100". There is a center peg to hold the rod so it doesn't sag but there is no medallion for the center peg. It looks very strange to have that peg jutting out of the center of the rod. Not quite sure what to do with it.

The set has a attractive finished look. Ordered this set and the 38-72 inch set. the smaller set came complete. The larger (wider) set came with out hardware, had to wait to receive new hardware and upon receiving it it was missing 3 double screws for the 3 main rod holders you attach to the wall and put the finishing meedallion on, we went to the hardware store rather then a near 2 month wait to put curtains on my window.
The con side of these are the manufacturer does not list a number for missing parts on there box or instruction sheet so you must go back to overstock to get it resolved. I recommend the look of these but caution you may have a longer wait to get all you need to mount your rods.

Please tell us about the quality of the product. The rod set seems of moderate sturdiness, my application is sheer on sheer

I purchased this rod for a 144" wide window opening. You mount it by attaching a medallion on each side and in the middle. Then you attach the rods from the 2 side medallions to the center medallion. As a result, the center medallion has 4 rods attached to it.
I gave it 4 stars instead of 5 for the following reasons:
1. For a 144" window, all the telescoping rods have to be fully extended. When fully extended, they do sag just a little bit at the joints. However, it wasn't that noticeable when I put the curtains on.
2. Because you have 4 separate rods that attach at the center and not 2 continuous long rods, there is a tiny gap in the curtains at the center medallion. You can't pull them completely shut.
Overall, this is a great product for the price.
