    My favorite new world would have to be Lasiodora. Although I have only one, parahybana. I wonder if breeder/dealers are determining prices based on these polls, dave

    As a genus, I really like Avicularia. Eupalasterus (?) are nice too, and Grammostola have a very good reputation for easy temper. Never seen any Brachypelma up close, but other people like those.

    Psalmopoeus defninitely! As of yesterday, I have one of each too!!! :D

    Although....those Taps look pretty cool too; I just haven't had a chance to get my mitts on any, plus they are $$$...

    I like your three original picks:

    1. Avicularia versicolor for a beautiful arboreal life cycle.

    2. B. smithi for classic beauty.

    3. G. rosea for a pretty pet rock to hold.

    Honorable mention: G. pulchra for personality.

    These are my favorites... hands down in my opinion great Ts.
