What are my options- 1.2 or 1.3 gain fixed 16:9 screen for less than $1,000?

I am looking to spend less than $1,000. I need a 1.2 or 1.3 gain screen. I would like a 130" - 135" fixed screen in 16:9 format. What are my options? Thanks in advance.

Several if you go by manufacturer's gain numbers, but not very many if wanting an actual 1.2 or 1.3 gain.

It may be out there, but I don't know of a true 1.3 gain screen in 130" to 135" size that is less than $1,000.

I have two Carada samples that advertise at 1.4. After a bit of testing next to my portable pull up Elite 1.0 gain screen there is no way it (brilliant white) is above 1.0 gain. I've owned two Caradas in the past and I've really liked their quality and service but I wish companies would be honest with their gain measurements (like Da Lite, Stewart, etc., which seem to be accurately advertised). I have not seen a 1.3 gain screen less than $1000 at that size but if you can save a bit more you should look at Da Lite's HD Progressive 1.3.

Yep, Jeff Meier measured the Brilliant White and it was 1.03 gain on-axis.
