    Pros - The two slings I expected to get came in perfect health as did all the extra ones he put in the box. :)
    Cons - None
    We worked out a trade (some roaches from me and a couple slings from him) and everything was very clear and prompt. He always replied very quickly to any messages I sent. Ship dates were given in advance, the tarantulas came in good health, and he throw in some freebies which was awesome. Short of providing the next winning lotto numbers I don't think there's any thing he could do to offer a higer level of service.

    Pros - amazing prices, generous freebies, great communication/packing, healthy arachnids
    Cons - nope
    Just received a group of P pulcher slings and an AF E murinus from John. He was very generous when I inquired about a bulk package, giving me an amazing price and more freebies than I would have ever expected. A+ on all fronts - communication clarity and speed, shipping speed, secure packing, healthy spiders, friendly attitude. Would definitely purchase from John again. Thanks!

    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!

    Pros - Quick to ship and finalize an order.
    Cons - None.
    As per our ad on in the classifieds we were looking to add a good number of breeding females into our stock. John sent us a message with a list of females he had available. We purchased nearly all of them. The packaging was solid, very firm, didn't allow the spiders to possibly wiggle their way out. He included a heat pack. Also insulated the box. The best part about the transaction is how quick he was to respond once the conversation began, which is something that we appreciate when moving large amounts of money. Would purchase from John again.

    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 - Responds in a timely fashion and is knowledgeable and helpful all around.
    Cons - No cons.
    I made my purchase while Ohio was insanely cold and he was nice enough to hold the t's for me until the weather got better. Easy transaction all around, good prices and variety, John is knowledgeable about the species he deals with and I wouldn't hesitate to buy from him.

    Pros - Variety, packaging, communication, promptness, prices
    I purchased several B. albiceps slings from John along with two freebies! They all arrived real plump and healthy today.
    Everything was just excellent. It was so thoughtful that he asked if I was OK with a certain species as a freebie. I was surprised he was selling B. albiceps slings at such a low price, considering they are perfectly started and how uncommon and beautiful this species is.
    Aside from a local meet up purchase, John is the first person that I’ve purchased tarantulas from Arachnoboards. His packaging is superb! I was surprised that there wasn’t a heat pack in the box, but rest assured the way tarantulas were packed made up for it. Definitely will purchase from John again.
