    Pros - Amazing packaging, excellent communication, great selection, more than fair trade
    Cons - Absolutely nothing
    Inland Sea posted an ad requesting matures males, and he was looking for a MM B. vagans. Given that mine recently matured, I reached out to him and offered a trade (it should be noted that he was asking to buy mature males, not trade). Rather than try to haggle, he sent me a list of 30+ tarantulas to choose from and basically said "take your pick." He didn't just offer cheap specimens, either. Keep in mind that this was all within half an hour of me sending that first email. I made my selection, and we both shipped off the trade the following week.

    Through no fault of Inland Sea, there was a delay with USPS that caused both of out packages to arrive a day late. His exemplary packaging skills ensured that the spider I picked out arrived without any issues. Much to my surprise, I found that he threw in two slings I hadn't even mentioned - two B. vagans to replace to the one I just gave him. In all, I received 2 B. vagans slings and 1 M. robustum juvie in exchange for my MM B. vagans. All three spiders arrived in great health.

    This is a seller and breeder who knows what he's doing! I couldn't recommend him any higher, and I certainly plan on doing business with him again in the future. Thank you Inland Sea for making this such a smooth process!

    Pros - Packaged well, communicated with me from purchase to arrival, GREAT prices, knowledgeable.
    Cons - None*
    I started communicating with Michael a couple days before I made my purchase, he was quick to respond and answer all of my questions. He shipped fast and packaged the T VERY WELL, *there was a "hiccup" with shipping that no one could have foreseen, so the package was delayed from Thursday to the following Tuesday. I'm not sure my T would have survived if it wasn't for the excellent packing job. I would definitely recommend. Thanks again, Michael!

    Pros - Many slings are half or more less than almost anywhere else, Nice variety,
    Cons - Communicating via e-mails took a while but I have always been bad about checking e-mails
    I bought 5 slings and 3 redeye tree frogs, even with the weather here being cold they all arrived in great shape, the straws made getting the slings into the enclosures, If only there was a video of him getting the baboons into the straws, Id pay to see that!

    Pros - Communication, Prices, Shipping, variety.
    Cons - None
    Excellent communication. Prices were great. Nice selection of tarantula's. Shipping had to be delayed due to a hurricane but totally understandable. Even though it wasn't going to hit his location he was worried that it may delay the package. Shows he cares about the animals he sells and not just a dollar bill.

    Packaging was excellent. All slings arrived healthy.

    Would love to do business again.

    Pros - Communication, Ease of Transaction, Professionalism, Shipping, Packaging
    Cons - None
    This was a fantastic transaction all around - especially considering I am a first time buyer. I purchased a Chromatopelma cyanopubescens - a long time wish list pick. To clarify, I have had T's in the past, but I had purchased them through a pet store. I've always been scared to do business through the mail, but after this transaction, I can see how unfounded this was. I was initially impressed with Inland's reviews, but I was even more impressed with how the transaction went down. Not only was there a huge selection, they answered questions promptly before purchase. After exchanging a few messages, I made my purchase after receiving an invoice. I also received tracking information, and they upgraded the shipping for me to make sure that it would arrive before the weekend. When I opened the box I was amazed at the care and quality of the contents. A Styrofoam box surrounded plastic bags, which contained a deli container, which contained paper towels (moist), which contained a small vial with the sling. This thing could have traveled safely to the moon.

    The sling is in great condition, and I am a very happy T owner once again. Thank you Inland Sea!
