I have used Onyx in the past. It's a nice looking film, shrinks well, good adhesive, sticks to the matrix well. I have never had one come back with it.

Was a little bit pricey in the UK.

Onyx and Charcool, both great looking film, great adhesive and clarity, Onys is a hybred metalized and Charcool is a color stable non metalized for those with AM or Nav concerns! Neither film has any downfalls IMO save for some people haveing a little harder time shrinking them! :dunno

not a dealer but worked for a dealer for 3 years... charcool xsr shrinks real well the charcoal is a thinner film harder to work with after you get spoiled with the xsr.... the onyx I always always had trouble shaping rarely got to play with it the metallized products are always funny about heating and as for as sticks to the matrix.. some I wouldnt say sticks to matrix cuz no tint to my knowledge will volunteeringly stick to some matrix dots out there with out the use of other methods and madico is proud of their film as in pricing not too bad though but the adhesive on that stuff is unbleivable great all around great product if you ask me unless of course you buy the cheap stuff CG line the only guarantee you can offer with that stuff is I guarantee it will turn purple and or fade greatly in 6 months... we used it as the no warranty film for the cheapos

I use lots of Onyx and Charcool 35's and that covers it all IMO.
The big Mac 3000 I was very disappointed with........too much reflectivity externally and slow drying. I won't be using again after the initial trial sample.

Metal edge? Too many choices on offer so keep it simple stupid (KISS) and therefore I stay with the 2 above.

Bastards to heat shrink... again me but maybe easier for others.

No failures which is worth more than anything.

Best pick XSR [cool] for framless BM's/ MB/ SUBR... I don't push MET/EDGE or any other HY/MET for the common reasons. This film is not for pincher custys. Great film for a color stable line up :krazy
