I have a 120" Abyss mounted at roughly 16.5-17' distance (~200"). I initially tried a Pulsar but the hotspotting was too much and swapped to Abyss which is perfect. No more hotspotting and also a less sparkly image. I couldn't be happier.

Are you in a light controlled room? I definitely agree there is some hotspotting/sparkly due to the high gain but I have only found it to be an issue at night no lights and watching regular TV broadcast. 1080p blue rays and 4k content I haven't noticed it as much. If you don't need the gain and are in a light controlled room go for the abyss. I had the abyss first but my projector is in the living room and gets about 50/50 daytime night-time watching

It's not a light-controlled room (white walls, have very large windows but with blackout cellular shades blocking them (some leakage around the border). The other side however is 50% open to the rest of the house and moderate light comes in from there. I have a 5040UB though, and that's plenty bright, even on the Abyss, even with some ambient light.
