What kind of budget do you have in mind?
Some 1.3 and 1.5 gain screens are better than others.

Just do a Google, at that price point one is the same as the next.. china cheap, might go up and down once or twice.. good luck

as airscapes mentions....at that price point, you will more than likely be dealing with the same inexpensive material regardless of what manufacturer you purchase from. I'd suggest you up your budget a bit and consider a da lite screen. They can get you into a 100" pull down with good material for just a bit more.

OP,
just an FYI, but a 'middle of the road', meaning not cheap, but not 2K dollars will get you into the $600-$800 bracket. Da-lite and Carada come to mind. I spent just over 7 hundred on a 115" 'precision' brilliant white screen with a gain of 1.4. I think Da-lite will cost you a little more for the same screen. GET SOME SAMPLES!!!

He is after a pull down screen which I don't believe Carada makes.
