    Man, great job!  looks like the image could be quite a bit larger versus the screen size.   Looks awesome though!

    Very nice work :)  I wish I had that amount of space to build something like that!

    Just wondering how far back you are teeing up from your screen. I have just gotten my Optishot (Merry Christmas) and am starting to set things up in my basement.

    Thanks in advance.

    Mike,

     

    I'm hitting about 10 feet away from the screen.

    Mike, I am building my own "impact screen" just to hit into not to project onto and I was going to use a king size sheet, backed by a tarp. Do you think this will stop a golf ball?  And what are moving blankets?

    Curious:  Does the HD projector require a 16:10 or 16:9 layout vs. 4:3?  I use a 4:3 (not HD projector) to display on entire screen.  Works well but was considering the HD devices - and now I am hearing they require the 16:9 spread.

    Rod, 

    Looks awesome, gave me some great ideas! What did you use for connecting the pipe together? Looks like 1" EMT, any problems with the cage?

    Also how far are you from the screen?

    Rich,

     

    Yes I used 1" EMT pipe. Got it from Home Depot. Just used the EMT connectors to join the pipe together. It works ok, but a bit wobbly...... But does the job.
