I'm having a hard time determining if my H.Mac sling is in premolt or not..would there be a change in its coloration for it to be considered that it's in premolt stage?

Yep it'll turn really dark. The abdomen will also appear large.

Typically slings darken up with the formation of the new exo-skeleton underneath (I believe thats how it works) Does it have adult colors yet? If yes It will go from the beautiful creamy white to a dull light-ish brown. (Describing color is not my strong-suit)

Fair enough. I saw mine not too long ago for just long enough to determine that if I don't rehouse it pretty soon I might have more tarantula than enclosure.
