    Everything from the get-go with this transaction was a pleasure! From communication to shipping to the specimens themselves, this seller made sure everything was beyond what I could have expected. I'll absolutely be doing business with them in the future! The new specimens are amazing additions to my collection!

    Pros - Knowledgeable, helpful, great communicator, fast shipping, good selection, good packaging, healthy specimens
    Cons - None
    Shane contacted me in regards to my MM GBB. I am not a breeder and was simply looking for someone to stud him out to.

    After some talking I offered him the MM to keep for a few of the slings should there be a successful pairing. He was nice enough to offer me two GBB slings and a N. chromatus sling that he already had on hand upfront, and even sent me a list of the spiders he was breeding, in which had a good selection. He was extremely communicative and kept me updated on everything while he shipped the slings to me. In addition, he provided me a pre-made shipping container for my GBB along with the slings, since I had never prepared one myself. Getting the GBB to him was super easy because of this. All three of the slings he sent were alive and well when they got to me.

    I would definitely trade/ buy with him again, and I highly recommend his services.

    Pros - Superb communication, thorough packing, prompt shipping, absolutely gorgeous specimen
    Cons - None!
    The T hobby is lucky to have Shane! He is incredibly pleasant to communicate with, and definitely has the best interest of the spiders and hobby at heart.

    I saw his post offering his MM P. cancerides and immediately contacted him. From there, the transaction was very quick and completely smooth.

    The male arrived today in perfect, thorough packing and is stunning!

    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 :)
