    100% Positive transaction. Great communication, animals were packed well for shipping. All slings arrived in perfect shape. John held on to my slings until the weather warmed up enough to ship them safely!!

    Thanks John for the nice animals!

    More better than Positive!
    I just got another package from John, a bit too close to the last time that I prefer sending him money. But he knows my addiction, and always come up with the new products I can't refuse (yeah... I am referring to the spiders here, nothing more). And once again, I'm very please with the transaction. He's very accommodating, the spiders are healthy. As always, packing is one of the best. Thanks John.

    Not much you can say that hasn't already been said. The packaging was some of the best I've ever seen. Would recommend.

    Terrific T's

    I recently received a number of slings from John .. and I couldn't be happier or more pleased with them or my transaction with John. His communication was great and his description/representation of the slings was accurate and honest. He obviously takes great care of his critters and truly cares about their well-being. We did run into a couple snags which were no fault of his or mine but through open and honest communication all went fine and worked out great .. I even received several nice surprises in appreciation for the business and willingness to wait a tad longer for my new "friends".

    Thanks John for a positive and rewarding experience .... but mostly thanks for the new additions (all of them!)

    John was/is a pleasure to work with. As a seller he was very fair, a good communicator, dependable and packed his spiders very well. He messaged me in a very timely manner and I won't hesitate to buy from him again.

    Just received 5 P. chordatus and 5 P. rufilata from John. All arrived alive, active, and very healthy looking - plump little suckers! Communication and shipping speed were great and his packing is ridiculously good. I wouldn't hesitate to buy from him again.

    Just did another deal with John and couldn't be happier! My end of the trade came in healthy and active as can be. I was even able to feed the Stegodyphus last night after they webbed things up a bit! The P. rufilata all looked great and came right out of there straws when I opened them up. Communication was great, packing was A+ (still don't understand how he can get spiders that large into straws that small!), and the experience was great like always. Don't hesitate to do a deal with John, you won't be disappointed! Thanks man!
  16. Quick and easy transaction. Perfect packing job. Highly recommended... Thanks again :)

    Just recieved a shipment from John of Rufilatas! Arrived in impeccable shape, the most professional packaging I've ever seen, and super healthy little slings!! John's reputation speaks for itself, I would never hesitate to do business with CatFishRod at any point in time. I not only highly recommend, but look forward to doing more business myself with John. Thanks!!

    John is easy going and pleasure to deal with. Packing is one of the better ones I usually get. Spiders in great health.
    Thank you!
  19. A#1 sale/trade with John

    John and I just completed our second transaction. I'm sure these will be followed by many more as this skilled hobbyist-breeder goes on to produce record-setting amounts of sacs/spiderlings from newer and rare species. Of perhaps more direct relevance to the hobbyist, John enjoys (loves) this hobby and provides spiderlings at reasonable prices. I received an excellent deal on P. rufilata as partial payment for some rares John added to his collection. I will watch with great anticipation as John goes on to raise and breed new species, chosen with care as he always does.

    Oh, and did I mention he is a pleasure to work with? Keep up the good work John. :biggrin:
