I thought the price was high enough to ensure decent quality. Not so. When I finally received the size I had ordered (the first shipment was the wrong size), it was bent. I could not wait any longer to hang curtains - and did not want to go through the trouble of calling and re-sending -- so I tried bending it back. That worked, which is not a good sign -- what I've learned is that this rod is not sturdy enough to hold the weight of curtains without bowing. With the 50-98" size you really need an additional support at the midpoint. Unfortunately I can't do that because my window is very wide window and does not have a place to attach such a support. My recommendation? Don't buy anything from this manufacturer. They don't pay attention to quality - not in the product, and not in its delivery.
