Large screens on the cheap

    If I doubled or tripled up the billboard tarp, do you think it would withstand a real golf ball?  I'm looking at the website

    and see that I could buy a big enough tarp to layer it without a seam.  What do you think?

    Yes absolutely, I think one layer would do that but the extra ones would give you piece of mind.

    how do you stop the bounce back? i tried this with foam balls and they really come back hard. I hung the tarp from the ceiling and let it hang loose on the sides. my ceiling is 8'-6" and the tap is about 10' tall so there is 1'-6" of extra material that rests on the floor. Do you think it would be more absorbent if the screen did not touch the floor?

    The next step up is Carl's Place, awesome service on exchanges etc. I ordered a 10'x12' but my Optoma x305st shortthrow projector would not conform so I exchanged it for a 10'x9' custom which took the same time to get. I do have the black edging on mine with the eyelets on all four sides, hold it up with a 1" x 9' PVC and 1/2" x 9' PVC on the bottom to stretch it. Works perfectly! They also sell remnants at:
    Good luck all!
