Steve Lewis Hamilton
If you google Steve Lewis Hamilton my reviews of him come up on the first page. I was quite surprised but pleased they are there because at the time I did them I wanted to do an honest evaluation of a service that gets bad press and to be fair doesn't really help itself sometimes.
At the time SLH was having a steady start to 2010 and my stats showed that. Since then things haven't gone so well - I suppose they couldn't keep going on how they were - in the previous 18 months I'd made £9,000 with relatively small stakes (between £25-£35 a pt). Certainly from June onwards I've only experienced one profitable month - which is dreadful for a premium service charging premium fees. Now you could argue that in the grand scheme of things that it's not too bad to be down £1k+ after making £9k and that's part of the game. But consistency is important, as is "the here and now" - you pay a year sub you expect a return on that year sub.
There are some green shoots to make me think positively though - Steve has finally admitted himself that things haven't gone well and is desperately trying to address them. A step forward as there wasn't much acknowledgement of the poor run previously. Additionally his "mentions" provide decent profit. I haven't followed them consistently until recently but Jan I managed to make 22 points profit. There's also the option of trading in-running - you'll see from comments in my "Back from holiday" post that one of the guys reading this blog has managed to make some money out of it - certainly the picks do well in-running.
I'll post some stats once I'm back from my holiday.
I think alot needed to turn things around but SLH has been here before and I've an open mind due to the success I've had with this service - my subs are up soon and by the end of March as we work through the NH season I'll make a decision then what to do.
