REVIEWS:

<<<Jim Ross>>> THANK YOU! More awesome “pro” level stuff you won’t find anywhere else and certainly not on Youtube. EXACTLY why I am an member, Shane! I have been a member for a couple years now and this is the stuff that keeps me here! Timing is perfect as I just partnered with a fellow with a truck full of cable, lunchboxes, distros, threefers, suicides, (and other things I still don’t know the names for, LOL!) and this will help get me up to speed as I work with my gaffer. Will there be more coming in this series, sir?
