    Pros - Tarantula as advertised, great communication, fast/prompt shipping, awesome packing!
    Cons - Absolutely none!
    First off it was a pleasure doing business with John2097.
    Facts:
    1) Great correspondence/communication from the get go.
    2) Tarantula was shipped and arrived as discussed (e.g.: prompt shipping), seller offered modes/options.
    3) Superb packing of the tarantula itself and the innards of the box and the included heat pack.
    4) And the kicker.........
    A freebie C.kaeng krachan was included, ironically a species of tarantula that I've been looking to purchase since getting heavy into Chilobrachys of late. Huge shout out to John, Thanks!
    A definite recommend!

    John has always given me the best possible service, his prices are always pleasantly surprising, his communication is great, and he does business just the way I like. He ships very quickly after you've ordered and ships well, the packaging is always tight and temperature controlled great, I.e. heat pack. This was not my first order and will not be my last.

    Pros - Excellent service. Traded Brachypelma for Chilobrachys. Great packaging.
    We traded Brachypelma for Chilobrachys. The package was well prepared, the spiders were accurately represented, the communication was excellent. Wouldn’t hesitate to purchase in the future.

    Pros - Great communication and a willingness to work together. Included freebies simply because he is an awesome human.
    Cons - ZERO
    I offered John2097 a trade which he was open to.

    Negotiation was simple and mutually benificial. John was even willing to give up one of his holdback slings just to help me out.

    When he was unable to ship out his portion of the trade on the day he planned he added in freebies to the box even though I was in no rush to receive and did not mind the delay.

    Communication was spot on throughout the entire process.

    The packaging was also the most professional and effective packaging I have ever seen in over 10 years of being in the hobby.

    I highly recommend doing business with John2097 again and again.

    Funny thing I had contacted him earlier about buying a few
    Chilobrachys Vietnam blue's he had up for grabs. He didn't have any at that time. Well he contacted me at a later date and went ahead and bought a few for me and my wife to enjoy. Would buy from again.

    Pros - Excellent communication & packaging, Smooth transaction, Big feisty Ts
    John and I swapped bloodlines with some of our excess balfouri males. He was thorough and upfront with his stock. Despite service delays pushing through undesirable weather, he’d confidently assured me the box would hold up. This guy fought his way out the vial. I have no doubt he’ll get the job done. I’ll be checking in with John, for future projects.

    Did a trade with John for my MM B. albiceps. Gave me an offer I couldn’t refuse. Subadult female P. striata plus a pile of B. cabocla slings. Everything was easy and fast, great to deal with, and all spiders arrived here healthy and happy. I would definitely do more transactions with John.
