Not too sturdy
This support rod bowed when extended to 8 feet. After it was extended to 12', it bowed dramatically. Definitely consider strengthening this product or offer a solution for the bowing of the rod when it is extended past 7 feet.

Reply from PipeAndDrapeOnline.com: Hi Ryan, thank you very much for your feedback, and we're really sorry to hear that you are having an issue with your support rod. Please let us know if the weight that you're hanging is within our recommendation of 15 lbs. or less. We're not sure how much weight is being used on the crossbar, as your order contained pipes and bases, but no fabric. The pipe shouldn't bow at all when used to hang 15 lbs. or less, so we certainly want to know if you're experiencing this issue even when using it within the recommended weight capacity. Please contact us at your convenience; we're always happy to assist. Thank you again for your input!
