Default Amazingoz on eBay

Hi All,

Just a word of caution. I ordered a whole Roo hide from this guy on the 20th of April, the only contact I have from him is him debating whether I have paid, which I did because it was a buy it now!! Nothing else in 4 weeks, depsite numerous emails from me asking for a delivery status.

A mate of mine has also ordered some it took a few weeks to get here and when it didit wasnt Roo hide and he sees it only fit to make lure's

Proceed with caution if you are thinking about getting some Roo hide from this guy.

Regards

Rob

Hi Rob

His name is Col Geramo and from New South Wales, what he sells on ebay is not really Falconry Grade roo..... its too thin. I purchased a load of him in 2004 and it was top grade stuff.... a couple of my fellow hood makers on here have seen the quality and used it as well. If you are ordering from Col you must ask for "Drumstuffed" kangaroo with a hide grade of around "91" ..... that works out about the thickest. I have his contact details somewhere....

Send an email to amazingoz@ozemail.com.au and address it to Col Geramo and explain what has happened.

I paid AU$75 per hide back then..... probably way more expensive now.

I have had 3 full hides of Col in the last 2 years. All have been 1.2 - 1.4mm and had no problems with delivery etc. The leather is top notch stuff and worked out cheaper including p&p than buying from the UK.

Hi Alex,

Is it possible that this Pete guy on eBay is trading under Col's name???? Or is Col on eBay as amazingoz?? I heard good reports, thats why I bought it, but for me had no response to any of my emails.

Regards

Rob

Had an email this morning, stating that my payment had not shown on his system, very apologetic about the lack of communication and delay in shipping, he's going to Express ship it, with a gift for the inconvinience, Hope it's OK when it gets here !!

Regards

Rob

Good to hear Col is a good bloke and always does his best for you..... this one must have gone under the radar.
