Stretching flexi-white: This weekend I found how much of a pain stretching this material is. For my previous build I used blackout cloth, which was very tough to pull but eventually stretched very taught. Flexi-white however is more akin to spandex or nylon, as in it will seemingly stretch forever. After pulling and worrying for about 45 minutes I decided to just "muscle it" and ended up with a stretched screen with no waves in the middle. The less gentle and careful I was with the material, the better the result. I have massive amounts of wave/ripple at my staples, but none on the viewing area. I will lay my border over the waves at the staples.
As with almost everything else in my DIY experience, I had to stop tip toeing and just go all in for best results.
