900 Global Webpage
« on: April 01, 2021, 03:21:09 PM »
Has finally been sucked up into Storms overarching webpage.  Although not everything has been populated as of yet.  I believe they are still working the kinks out.
Looking good so far.

In my opinion, it looks awful. It has lost it's own identity, no main page, no nothing...

Storm's website, in general, continually gets worse.  It is very clunky.

I agree. Simple is better. Can't really navigate through their website without getting lost or confused.

My thought is that it looks very 1990s; as though they put as little time and effort into building the website.  It needs a serious upgrade to make it look more modern.

I don't see much wrong about it. They're clean and simple with sorting options available on the side. The actual ball pages are rock-solid too. But the lineup pages would look better with more of a colorful background instead of the plain white. They really need to add a homepage as well.

It's kind of a bummer that they lost/didn't transfer over the retired ball sections for Roto Grip and 900 Global but oh well.

The issue is it is very glitchy.  For example, when looking at the Storm balls home page, it shows 6 balls in the Thunder line.  If you click on the filter to show the 6 Thunder line balls, the number next to Thunder changes from 6 to 46.  It only shows 6, and the other filters only have categories that add up to 6.  Same thing with the other lines (for example Master line changes from 7 to 55.)  It appears as though even though the user is only looking at the current balls, it is changing the number of balls to both the current and discontinued count.  The Storm ball brand filter is also always off by 1 ball.  So when you are looking at the 22 worldwide balls, the overall Storm filter shows 21.  Likewise, when you look at the 6 Thunder lines balls, the Storm filter has 5 next to it.

To be honest I never noticed that. Wasn't paying much attention to the counts because the pages displayed (and still do) what I wanted when sorting the categories. It's something that needs to be fixed for sure but still pretty minor.

I hope they correct the missing data that has been omitted.  To me it makes STORM look like a supreme being and Roto and 900G are the red headed step children vice companies who have their own soul within the corporation.

My gripe is that 900G doesn't list who's on staff, National, Regional, etc.  I have brought this up with Cabanski during his weekly vlogcast.

Until they fix and/or finish this conglomeration www.123bowl.com has listings for all companies bowling balls both current and discontinued.

This thing has had issues since day 1. Inconsistent and wrong query returns everywhere. Terrible UI design. As stated, no home page. The way they order the balls in the lists makes no sense. The old Roto Grip site would have been a much better template to work from. Even the old storm site would have been better. Discontinued balls still show up in their Matchmaker. Page refreshes when you have to select a filter (show advanced search) each time it's just a very old, outdated design that is not very user friendly. The bug list continues and is available for a free ball lol. Sorry storm, D-
Current 4 ball selection:
Omega Crux
Axiom
Phaze II
