This will be a pinned thread for buyers to leave seller feedback, and visa versa. This way it will be easy for members to keep this all in one thread. Please ONLY reply in this thread if you are leaving feedback for someone. Thanks.

Simplejack feedback:  After a bit of aggravation on my part having to do with Paypal, my package of hooks from Simplejack was shipped that same day that I finished sorting things out (within hours actually).  A thank you to Simplejack for having patience.  Everything is exactly as described.  I could not ask for more.  I will not hesitate to do business with him again.

+1 for SImpleJack.  I didn't have any problems with Paypal and I got my box of hooks sooner than I could've hoped.

I forgot about this thread.  I'm going to do the +1 again ... this time for Steeldrifter.  I've now got two of his rods ... and I couldn't be more pleased.

+2 for Steeldrifter. I just bought one of his summer sale rods. A 5wt 8' 2pc and it is gorgeous. I still need to get a reel for it but I have used a reel from my factory rod and reel combo just to see how it feels. It sure does feel good in the hand. Steeldrifter was a pleasure to deal with and the way he packaged the rod for shipment I had no doubts there would be any damage. I would not hesitate buying another one of his rods

I have bought 4 rods for myself from Steve and two for my son. I have turned friends on to Steve and two of them have bought rods from him. I love the matrix blanks that he builds on. Great rods at a great price. I don't have plans to buy rods anywhere else from now on.

I have to put out a shout out for Steeldrifter also. He went so far out to build me a custom 2 wt and to customize my favorite Orvis. It is hard to find anyone better...actually impossible.

This will end up like a Steve tribute thread!!
I also brought a rod and it is spot on. Steve was very thorough and made sure the rod was spot on for my requirements.

His pictures from his recent trip to his cabin ... I am not so sure he's lost that much weight, it's just that his head's gotten that much bigger since following this thread.

LMAO...I hadn't even looked at this thread till just now, forgot all about it. Gotta say though thanks guys I appreciate the kind words. Not a big deal,  just the way I was raised and taught to be. If someone is going to pay their hard earned money to you to do a job then you better darn well make sure they are happy and get their money's worth. I thank my dad for teaching me that, God rest his soul.

Finally took out a 2pc 9ft7wt Steve made for me (my son's) a few months ago. Great performance, great appearance, great pricing.

It's my 4th or 5th rod from Steve, I could say the same about them all.

This site also just tripped me up!   How long have I had my head where it doesn't belong?

 

Anyway, count me among Steve's fans.  He has always delivered more quality than I could have ever expected at the price, added nice touches I did not anticipate, and, with patience, put some of my diimwitted 'bright' project ideas back on solid ground to boot.

 

I don't know where he finds the time -- except I'm told he only catnaps hanging from the ceiling over his fish tanks.
