Help requested between 2 screens

I am trying to decide between the following fixed screen:

Stewart Cima Neve
Seymour Glacier White

I will be using it for a JVC RX7, in a light controlled room, with flat dark brown walls. I will be projecting from 13'6", and plan between 120"-125" 16x9, depending on what size I can actually generate once the projector is mounted. I will sit 12' from the screen.

The pros/cons to me to them are:

Stewart Cima Neve--A LOT of good reviews/mentions here, only in specific sizes, higher price
Seymour Glacier White--Very few mentions, but well rated in them, built to any size, MASKING PANELS available, slightly lower price (basically same with the masking panels)

I REALLY like the idea of having custom masking panels specifically made for the screen, so that is what really attracts me to the Seymour GW, but the Cima Neve is so highly rated, it's hard to choose.

Thanks in advance!

Those 2 materials perform very well, maybe the neve has a bit extra sheen, maybe the glacial white has a slight blue shift. At that point features and price may be more pertinent to making a choice. You can request samples from each manufacturer as well which may help aid in a decision.

You really should not need a masking system with that projector in a properly treated room. So remove that from your equation.

I’m going with the Cima Neve...same projector, same throw distance...also a bat cave...tried and proven by many on here...i’m Not “taking a chance” with a screen anymore...been there done that, a royal pain to unmount, package, and return ship...

Whats the risk with SeymourAV? They provide free samples so you can see the material. And larger samples at a low cost.

I should have mentioned I’m doing a tab tensioned electric...XD people can see the weave, UF is low gain, no glacier white available...Cima Neve in Tab tensioned electric, no weave, good gain, tried and proven...

If the Seymour has no visible sheen/texture with a neutral gain, i'd go for that with the masking panels. For scope, the black bars don't bother me so much, but they do top and bottom in 16:9 screens.
