The bar rail is of great quality. I had a 90-degree and 2, 45-degree miters to make and it worked great. The service was excellent. I picked up the first batch and it was all packed up securely. When I decided to wrap the end of my bar with the 550 rail, I ordered an additional 2-foot section and it was delivered the next day. I’m very pleased.
