    The new web site of Bass Pro Shops is a piece of crap and they couldn't have picked a worse time of year to roll it out. You could die of old age waiting for that new, counter intuitive site to load (assuming you could figure out how to navigate it in the first place).

    Ranger Boats made the same mistake. They tried to get all fancy instead of sticking to the basics and making the their web site user friendly.

    Bass Pro Shops takes the cake though. Heads should roll over that one.

    yeah the new site is a piece of crap. i hate it.
     
  4. I received an email from basspro saying they are sorry for the glitches in the new website and they would like to offer $20 for the inconvenience, the only problem is in the small print it says you have to spend $100 to get the 20 off. Anyone else receive this email?

    The BPS website has always been slow, even before these changes. Doesn't make any sense. It takes forever to do anything.

    Yeah I agree the new site does suck pretty bad. I like Ranger's new website, the boat model pages are exactly the same just the homepage and some of the top navs are different, at least it's not slow.

    The WORSE new site is Frank's great outdoors...SUCKS....you will litterly fall asleep trying to load it on top of that you can't find anything, I probably spent 500 bucks there last year online, they won't get another dime from me until they get a new server..... Big mistake and I bet there orders are WAY down.

    Oh and Gander Moutain's new site sucks too....way to slow...for the life of me I can't figure out why these large retailers skimp so bad on the servers...go dedicated or go home.
