      god this one is as blurred too

      Yeah, way too blurry to tell for certain. Age is a useless factor when it comes to sexing Ts, you're better off telling us what size the T is roughly (in centimetres or inches) in diagonal leg span.

      From what I CAN make out, I think your specimen may be male.

      Its pushing 2 inch and a half.
      I should invest in a micro camera for this hobby

      @Lib good cameras help significantly. ;)

      Does your T have a small semicircular light patch just above it's epigastric furrow? It's faint, but i'm pretty certain I can see it in your picture. That little patch would indicate male - it's called the dot method, a pretty accurate way to sex Poecilotheria species.
