Pros - Thinks beyond himself and personal gain to better appreciate the hobby as a whole. Solid bullet list of general expectations but it's his more constructive qualities (of which he'd gone out of his way) that I would not forget.
After stumbling across a male genic in his local craigslist, Shane thought of me and one of my many MM requests, which generally go without response. I’d not forget how fortunate I am, through his willingness that he'd reached out. While quoting what was likely the list price and enduring any legwork, Shane proposes nothing more than “a few return slings” from my end. His offer to cover shipping intrigued me most, only because I couldn’t help but wonder if he was up to something. It became clear; Shane just knew a thing or two about spider karma.
Shane asks good questions, even on what he's clearly already researched. I’d deal with him much sooner than those who always know all their stuff and then some.
That is especially evident in his box. His packaging told me quite a bit about him and confirmed plenty more, from chosen girth to the amount of detail it would allow. Although concepts are recycled for great reason, technique is always open to interpretation. In this case, all of the above had been incorporated with much thought. Experience is great but when it comes down to it, it’s obvious who picks up on the incredible margin of error with these creatures. Though forgiving, this does separate what really matters. This guy does it proper.
I’d never redact any extra points, just because I’m weary of stepping in something. It would seem drawn out at this point, though it’s mine to dwell on as I do own my opinions. Even with what may be one of the greatest examples of “hobby form” long dominating and commonly kept among us, I’m not one to overlook meticulous vetting, in search of purity. After years of combing through and keeling out what is offered by now, they appear to be the only thing black and white (an irritating observation by myself). With that being said, this male stands good with me (& spider OCD) if only a matter of locality. I’ve neutered far pricier males on just a hunch. Shane brought this to my attention on just a hunch. I’m grateful when these things turn out to be more promising than expected. Thanks again Shane.
Pros - Fast communication, fast shipping, friendly. Very stand up guy to deal.
Cons - Nada, none,
I posted an add about ISO dubia colony, Shane message me that he has what I’m looking for. What I like about this transaction was how fast we done the deal. Communication is on point and easy guy to deal with. Fast shipping, he shipped my package first and Was very happy with my roach colony. Wouldn’t hesitate to do busniness again in the future. Know that you’re in good hand when dealing with Shane. Thank you
