I'm up in the air with it right now. The consensus was that it would take the place of my Drone as my main marker, but I'm not seeing it yet. Maybe I haven't used it enough, or maybe I just really like the feel of my Drone in comparison. As a side note, I did let a buddy borrow it on Saturday and he was pretty impressed by it, so it may just be me.
As for the anodizing, that's up in the air as well. If I decide to keep it long-term, then the anno would probably be a worthwhile investment. As it stands, if I anno it now, and decide to put it up for sale, I see nearly zero possibility of recouping the expense. I ended up ordering up a new screen and grips, so my costs on it are up to ~$160, and I've been offered just over double that for it as is. Even with a fresh anno (>$200) on it, I don't see many RX's getting >$500. I'll just have to keep using it to figure out what I want to do with it.
