Why has Promark using vague spec listings formost of the stick on the website?

For example, looking at a classic 5B. It says..


  • Size: 5B
  • Length: 15" - 16“

What does that even mean? I know the diameter of a classic 5B is .590, but what about the other sticks?

Why is the length listed as a range instead of a specific length?

Why is Promark doing this?

Pro Mark's website is one of the worst out there. It is hard to search, hard to find what you want, hard to find similar or comparable sticks, and often specs are listed haphazardly like they're an afterthought, instead of being the key part of a stick's description.

In my mind Vater has the best and easiest website to use. Being able to search by size ranges and find stick suggestions that are similar to the stick you're looking at is really helpful.

They should solve this problem and I don't think it will benefit their site and business. When I was building a website for car dealer business I made sure that everything is correct and understandable for everyone as I know who is the target/clients. Even I don't like when I access a site and I don't understand some things. I always focus on making a user friendly site with a simple interface and not only, and to be accessible for everyone.

If you click on “More Info” about the stick, you get the specifics. There’s another thread on here about this.

Companies need to understand that not everyone is a webmaster-level computer guru. Most just want the site to work & the info handed to them. If you design a site where the customer has to spend over 10 seconds searching for what they want with no results, you'll lose them to another company who knows to make it easy.

My old job had a webmaster who used to get so mad that "people are stupid" because they couldn't work their way through his convoluted website. The guy that replaced him was dumbfounded why the site was so hard to navigate & had it simplified within a day.
If Promark can't see the wisdom that Vater knows, then they deserve to lose business.

Looks like they fixed it a while ago. For me, it's always been retailers that have missing/inaccurate stick info
And most of that is the human at the counter having NO idea what the stick is or what it's about.
