Best Anodizing?


#1

I’m wondering what company has the best anodized designs, (regardless of whether they do it themselves or not). I would say MonkeyfingeR. The Evil Yo and the Gelada have blown me away.


#2

No doubt Monkeyfinger

You can’t beat the finish on the evil yo and although the finish on the gelada isn’t as durable its still amazing.


#3

evil all the way

I love MFD’s ano jobs, but I think One Drop just steps it up a little more. Their acid washes are amazing and then they add beautiful splashes. A couple of MonkeyFinger’s splashes are outrageous and just end up looking ugly. Most of the colorways, such as the YYE edition Evil Yo, are beautiful. It’s a tough decision but I’m gonna go with One Drop on this one.

I think square wheels have got their anodizing down.

^^^^^ I would agree with that, Square Wheels might tie MonkeyFingeR for me.


#7

clyw anyone?
I didn’t really like many of monkeyfinger’s stuff until the ilyy cloab:


plus there’s a ghost monkey under the heart

also, ilyy candonize is pretty incredible.

Square Wheels so far.


#9

CLYW and VsNYYC, but that may seem a bit biased :wink:

  1. G2
  2. CLYW//VsNYYC

#11

we all use the same anodizer lol


#12

I live near it I think…


#13

hahaha really? did not know that, that’s honestly pretty cool.


#14

i think so too, but its starting to make color choices hard lol


#15

I really like gruntbull. I think MonkeyFinger over does it. I like nice solid colors, like ILYY and General yo


#16

I really like Square Wheels ano jobs.


#17

CLYW I think is still the standard of fancy anodizing. I also like a lot of the c3 looks.


#18

Depends what you’re after. For splashes CLYW/OD/G2 are nice, for really fancy art-like work MonkeyFinger is great, for solids ILYY does gorgeous work. C3 and YYR are great at that vibrant mirror-like ano as well.
