Nope, proved to be a dead end for me personally - resolutely the most unhelpful company I have dealt with in this stint of screen material research. I could get neither pricing nor samples out of them, so I pursued it no further.

Long time has passed since this thread was updated. There doesn't seem to be any reviews anywhere on the Dragonfly Ultra Acoustiweave material.

For roughly the same pricepoint or slightly under Seymour, I really wonder how it performs. Anyone tried this in the past 3 1/2 years since this thread was updated?

Regardless of what your dealer quoted you, it's an imported $400 screen with a 12' visible weave that measures 0.8 gain. If that's where you're targeting, I'd recommend at least going directly to the suppliers like Monoprice, Grandview or Silver Ticket.

Dragonfly is one of those brands that are used a lot in the installed (CEDIA) market where the Karens of the world have no idea what they're getting while the "value" dealers fill the home with Chinese high-margin/ low-cost products. They don't do much in the AVS community where people are the informed-tweaky type.

Cheers,
Chris

Thanks - that's the kind of feedback I'm looking for. I'm still leaning Seymour, but was just curious about this.

I have 2 projects and will most likely be going Seymour XD for both.
