I was surprised at the size of the end pieces of the rod - almost 2" in diameter. I couldn't put it as snug against the window as I would have liked. I only had to extend it about 6" so I can't verify it sags when extended. It is rather thin overall so that probably would be true. My main reason for not recommending the rod is that the ends have black rubber pieces attached to keep them in place. Unfortunately, if you make any adjustments to the rod after it's in place, it leaves a black scuff mark on the wall. Overall, it fits my needs.
- How did the color on site compare with the actual product? Good
