I am looking at a new 5 Spot frame and am wondering how you determine whether it is powdercoated or anodized. It is mat black and has the new Turner stickers. Any help would be appreciated!

Thanks

My guess it's anodized

Sound's to me you are looking at a ano frame. Powder black will have a gloss finish.

If it is matte, it is ano. All Turner PC finishes are shiny.
Powdercoat looks like a thick paint finish, shiny and smooth. The Ano is a sort of shiny, rough, metallic finish. I recently picked up a med. 5 Spot in silver Ano, and yes it is beaut! :)

Unless it's matte powder! ;) ;) ;)

Just to clarify, that's not a stock color. Turner did it for me on my DHR, and I had this one done on my RFX.
