I did a little Web surfing this morning but am having trouble finding a high-gain (>1.5) gray screen that's still on the market. I had been thinking of getting an Optoma/Panoview Graywolf II (1.8 gain), but every place that had the 120" is sold out; it appears to be discontinued. Can anyone suggest alternatives? I remember the Graywolf getting mixed reviews - some people hated the 'sparkly' effect of the retro-reflective material. I'm looking for something in the 115-120" range, 16:9 aspect ratio, either a manual pull-down or a fixed-frame wall-mount. The Stewart Firehawk would be perfect, but it's too expensive ($2,500). I'm trying to come in under $800.

Carada meets the price range but the gain needed. My guess is that you won't find anything to meet both, so you may have to compromise on one or the other.

Keep in mind that the higher the gain the worse off axis viewing is.
