Bulldogger & Gottahavapj,
I am not using anything for weight on the bottom right now, and at the moment I don't think I need it. My screen is hanging pretty darn straight, and even though I have a few very slight waves that I can see from the side, I cannot see them at all from the front of the screen or when watching movies. I think the fact that I am using a 4" roller (alum. pipe) helps to avoid vertical waves or curling.
When I asked this question of the notorious
Chris of Seymour AV, he advised me to be carefull and not go too heavy, just as you said Bulldogger. He says that the right amount of weight is a metal electrical conduit, or the equivalent. If my waves get worse or at all noticeable that's what I will probably use, and will probably sew a little pocket on the bottom of the screen to hold it.
gotthavapj, I never saw your question on weighting, sorry for the delayed answer.
BTW, just watched "Babel" (HD-DVD) on my Seymour AV Sheerweave 4500 screen tonight, and it looked awesome!
