I love it! A little clanky, but one layer of electrical tape on the inside of the rods make it sound less clanky. Seems pretty sturdy and solid, for a three piece item.
I don't know what else is out there, but this bar feels flimsy and weak. It'll get the job done and it's affordable, but if you want something that'll strike fear(or excitement) in the heart of your loved one, this may fall short.
works as expected
