Acrylic Single Rod Hardware Set is rated 3.3 out of 5 by 9.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love! I love these drapery rods! Just installed them a couple weeks ago and had no issues. I just wish they came in more options as far as length - would love to have this in an 88"!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love these rods! I had no problems installing these rods or the quality of the acrylic. They sat in the box for a year before I was able to put them up, and they were in perfect shape. The only issue I had was that some of the polished brass finials were not cleanly machined, so getting them on was a little bit tough, but when they needed to be removed, they had scratched the pole. The scratches can't been seen when the finial is on all of the way, but the machining could be better. Also, thrilled they have a double rod series now, however the second rod should also be clear and not whatever metal finish you choose.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beautiful & well made I purchased two rods in polished nickel and I am pleasantly surprised at the good quality of these rods. They arrived to my home quickly and in perfect condition, wrapped in cellophane. Both rods had very slight bows, but the rods leveled out straight once they were hung on the hardware and the drapes hung off of them. Another reviewer mentioned hers had dirty debris all over them that could only be removed with acrylic cleaner, but mine arrived shiny and very clean. They are a beautiful updated look for a very good price. I only wish they had larger size options.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beautiful Beautiful, well-made and easy to install. Adds the perfect amount of drama with brass but still airy.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Good Buy, if you get them brand new... I bought four of these, two at a time. They look great when brand new. On my second order, I was sent one where the acrylic was scratched, bowed, brass discolored, and clearly returned by another customer because the protective film was missing. Instead of returning, as Ballard offered for me to do and ship me a new one (if in stock, a big IF I might add), I decided to keep and accept a small discount in return, because I had paid someone to install and was preparing for a dinner party in the next two days; these took more than two months to receive in the first place. So I'm disappointed as I need to purchase more for the rest of my rooms and I'm afraid they will be sub-par. I would expect premium quality as they are pretty expensive for a single rod.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Not quite right... Was so very sad this curtain rod did not work out because the price and convenience were 5 stars!!! I ordered the polished nickel hardware which looked nothing like all of the polished nickel fixtures i have in my house. Not shiny--not really polished. In fact, it looked just like my stainless steel fridge. The acrylic rod was in fine condition, but would have looked better a little longer. Not the look I was wanting, so everything went back.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Pretty, but flawed product Of the three sets I ordered, only one of the acrylic rods was completely "true." One was slightly bowed. One was very visibly bowed. In addition, note that you must hang all of your drapery rings INSIDE the attachment point for the mounting hardware. This is because the end cap is barely larger than the acrylic rod. Thus, your rings will slide right off the end if you try to put any rings outside the mounting hardware. This may greatly limit your ability to balance your drapes on the window. So, consider carefully when you place the mounting anchors. All that said, this price is far less than custom hardware with this look. So.... I'm living with it. Will be calling Ballard about replacing the two bowed rods.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Great price, but several drawbacks I was impressed by the price on these sets (and that the rod, brackets and finials are sold as a set). I was eager to see them in person. Unfortunately, there were several issues. 1. The rods were dirty and acrylic cleaner is needed to remove the sticky substance (adhesive?) that is on them. They should have been cleaned between fabrication and sale. 2. The brass finish on a few pieces of hardware was already flaked off when I opened the boxes. Knowing that it would take a while to get a replacement, I moved forward using the defective pieces. 3. One of the three rods is bowed. Sliding the bowed rod into its brackets was not easy and the rod doesn't sit in the center, support bracket. 4. The holes drilled in the ends of the rods for the finials are not all centered. You have to work a little bit to get some of the caps on. 5. The installation instructions don't say how close the outside brackets should be to the edge of the rod, so we are supposed to just guess on that one. So, the price is fantastic, but you'll wait a while for something that might be less-than-perfect. Photos accompanying this review were rejected.
