My ego looks amazing, it's a real head turner now. Thank you very much Mario.

Mario (FX Anodizing) did this Demon for me a while back in a Cosmo Fade to Black Style. He was on point. I gave him color options he chose and delivered 3 weeks later. It came out way better than I could of imagined.

I sent Mario my beloved NYX Tri-Fade matrix to have it redone in it's original Tri-Fade color scheme. The original finish was well worn and i wanted to restore it and improve it. We decided on giving the skull and "X" milling a matte finish to help it stand out more and Mario did a fantastic job and I am very pleased with how it turned out. You don't see too many Tri-fade anodizing jobs being done anymore simply because they are difficult to do.

For those who haven't used FX Anodizing before, I swear by Marios work, and I have trusted him with rare markers and prototype parts that are truly irreplaceable, and I will continue to do so going forward. This is my first time posting feedback for FXA, but not the first time I've used their services.

I used to use PK Selective, and then AcidRain Paintball exclusively. When they had both gone out of business, I went to several other "big names" in paintball anodizing and had terrible experiences with slow turnaround, bad communication and subpar workmanship. Thank god a friend recommended FX Anodizing; that was the start of a good, and I hope long, relationship.

The quality of workmanship from FXA is top-notch; I have sent in markers and parts to go from matte to gloss, gloss to matte, and "beat" to "sweet" - I have yet to be anything but amazed by what I get back. Most important, communication is never lacking - Mario answers messages and emails promptly and thoroughly, pays attention to what you want done, is up front with his thoughts on a project and his abilities, and gives regular updates. The turn-around time has always been amazing me - I was used to waiting weeks (sometimes months) for projects to come back, but FXA gets it done quicker and better.

This frame was milled by Manny at Shocktech prior to the development of the SFLs - similar to a set of UL lowers but with more cuts, and much more light weight. It's truly one of a kind. It was originally matte "shock blue" but the marker was destroyed by the 2nd owner and only some of the parts survived. FXA took it from dust blue with some wear to a deep, rich glossy black. It's simple, and it's perfect.

As with everything FXA does, this is fantastic work - a rare BPS Twister body style which had a tough life and lost its original finish, as well as acquiring some serious wear. Mario brought it back from the grave with a classic matte black finish that really shows off the cuts, and made it look like new again! Again, a seemingly simple scheme but truly an amazing job - this was an especially difficult project and it came out better than I could have ever hoped.

March 5th 2014 I sent Mario my geo 3 to be anodized

Super positive experience

His communications was phenomenal and made me feel relaxed especially with this being my first time sending something to be anodized.

I had a super ugly 3 color geo 3 I had received in a trade and wanted it gloss black. I know have thee sickest and 1/1 gloss black geo 3.

Don't hesitate to deal with!

This is Marker #2 that is done through Mario @ FX Anodizing. I received this Marker in the wrong colors so I sent it to Mario and he saved me.

Here is MARKER #1

He communication is thorough and does all his projects with care.

I just gave him my insane Idea and PRESTO it's on the Marker. The detail is ****ing awesome, the colors pop and Mario is good people.

Thumbs up Fire Eclipse ano DM12

I had this done by Mario over the summer of 2012.

From start to finish took around 4 weeks, if I recall correctly, because I had him take it apart and put it back together as well as polishing and anodizing.

Fit and finish were AMAZING. FX really does top notch and FAST work. The polishing was uniform and very smooth.

Ano matching on multiple types of aluminum was very good, as well (which can be very hard!).

Communications were excellent, with several phone conversations making sure I was informed about time schedules and work progress.

Overall I'd give FX a 10/10 and would use them again in the future.

Now for the pictures!
(There's an original Eclipse anodized part in these pics, try to figure out which one it is!)
