Material for 6’ curtain rod


​ built a motorized lego shade for my projector room with lego technics and a curtain shade I cannibalized (see picture). I want to make another motorized curtain shade to cover a larger window but I can’t find the same material for the curtain rod in the required length. I looked on Amazon, Alibaba, ebay, Uline etc for a heavy duty cardboard tube (material used in my original curtain shade) but can’t find anything long enough or strong enough. I thought about changing the material to PVC (too flexible) or wooden dowel (too heavy?) but neither idea seems great. Looking for an expert opinion from someone who’s made their own curtains before on what material to use for the curtain rod for a 6’ x 4’ window.Thanks! via /r/DIY
