Is it worth upgrading to a higher gain screen?

I've just had to convert my acoustically transparent projector screen (spandex - 0.7ish gain?) into a non-AT screen and this has me wondering if I should upgrade to a new screen with a gain of 1.3. I have a JVC-RS420 shooting at a 120" 2.35 screen currently (111"x47") from 15ft away. Would a higher gain screen make a significant difference in image pop?

I just went from a 1.1 gain 120 inch 16x9 to a 140 inch 2:39 1.3 gain screen. Stewart Studiotek 130 G4. Stewart had historic price drops . In the neighborhood of 50% price drop. Stewart is just on a different level regarding brightness, artifacts, hotspots, depth, color, detail, sharpness, . I would at least get a price quote to compare to what you are considering.

I am also interested in the Stewart screen sale prices. I am trying to talk myself out of going with a silver ticket screen off of Amazon for my sony vpl-hw45es projector.

Just to clarify about the Stewart pricing so there is no misunderstanding: it's not a sale that's going on for a limited time, rather it's an overall price reduction Stewart implemented within the past year. There are some great Stewart dealers that frequent this forum, and other excellent dealers that I can refer you to personally or skylarlove1999 and others can refer you to (all authorized of course). Best bet is to get a couple quotes because pricing does vary among dealers.
