    Austin rocks. That's all.

    For real though, You've seen his picture thread with the baby GBBs, and today I got to meet some of those babies in person! He did an amazing job breeding that difficult species, and he did it extremely quickly! He also found a buyer for most of my share of the slings, and some of their siblings arrived today, well-packed and lively.

    Y'all know that usually males are sent off for breeding loans, but I sent Austin my two adult females. It would have been very easy for him to have claimed they died in shipping, or that they had failed to produce, or to downplay the number of spiderlings they had, but he did right by me. He was honest about my females producing and his not. He sent me pictures and sling counts. He sent me my share of the babies. His integrity is second-to-none. You can trust this guy.

    He's one of those gems who is in this for love of the hobby and not money. He's helpful, he's generous and patient, he's skilled and he's honest. I hope to see him get his paws on more and more rare species and receive the recognition he deserves, because we'll all benefit.

    Thanks, Austin!

    Just unpacked some slings from Austin. I am very happy with what he sent me. They are healthy and fat. Overall, very good experience dealing with Austin. Thanks so much. Will definitely do business with him again.

    I've had the pleasure of working with Austin for about a year now and he just completed his side of our latest trade - found my CB Xenesthis intermedia sling on my doorstep this morning! As in the past, things could not have gone any better. Austin has established a rock solid reputation on these forums with his incredible success with breeding projects, resolute integrity, generosity and consistency in how he conducts business with his fellow hobbyists and customers. Unlike some unfortunate hobbyist whose enthusiasm has been soured by scammers and thieves, I have been blessed with crossing paths with some of the finest people in the hobby and Austin is obviously one those who makes this hobby such great fun! To tell you that he has great communication skills, very healthy specimens and some of the finest packing I've ever seen is a little redundant if you've looked at all his past reviews. Suffice to say, it will be your loss in this hobby if you never form a personal or business relationship with Austin!
