I don't have anything as far as a specific time frame for when this is happening. However, I thought you guys might like to see a quick sample of the updated website that is coming our way! The two screen shots I have included show the new interface, and that it will be a fusion of the main site, the ASP site, the LazerForge site, and adds customization options previously only available from the Custom shop.

I know there has been a lot of interest in seeing a refresh of the main site, and I think you are going to be happy with what is coming.





Imagine what you will know tomorrow....

Awesome, very nice to have all of it in one site and make it more easy to use and more customizable!

Phil posted the new link on FB. Asking folks to check for typos, general errors. Also states clearly do NOT make orders....

I for one really like it. MUCH quicker to browse and navigate.

That's kind of what I was doing when he asked me to run through it a few days ago. Now, with more eyes on it, things should be really good when it goes live.

Huh, pre-customized hilts under Legacy Sabers. Etched Grand Master (~$300 per Initiate hilt) and accuracy-mod-Monarch for ~$350.

New site looks good. I wonder what the lead time for these customized hilts are now that it is much easily available.

Still need to distinguish between some of the parts. Dissident, Monarch, and Vengeance pommels all still use the same photos. Are all 3 exactly the same, because they appear different in the builder.
Otherwise, like the look and being able to access everything from one site.

Also can't find the timing shims in the new layout. Shouldn't it go under general accessories?

Anywhere we can leave feedback?

I mean, if they're updating the website anyway, it would be nice if the DIY 12W LED had four drop downs that let you assign each individual diode, instead of one drop down with a half-bajillion options that somehow still lacks the combo I want.

Will powder coating be an option with ASP? I sure hope so. I hope this gets running soon. I want a really custom saber now.

Weird, I can't get to the link. When I click it, I get redirected to the main SF site.

Seems faster, hopefully the new site solves some of the site down issues lately

I'm with Kouri, how about some simpler menus. Scrolling through a gazillion and three options in one menu is very tedious.

Anyone have a link to said FB post? I'm assuming it's one of the groups, since I don't see anything over at SaberForgeLLC.

Overall looks good...

I think while they're at it they should remove those self-fellating descriptions of the hilts.
  • "The hilt is machined by a professional blade smith, with tireless care given to every detail of it's construction. This saber is a work of art"
  • ".... which is the focal point of this gorgeous prop"
  • "this saber is nothing short of a work of art."

There's worse ones on there, but I don't want to waste a bunch of time digging them up.

Couldn't a Contact Form linked to a temporary Email address have been used on the Contact page for potential users of the new site to leave comments, good or not-so-good irrespective of whether they have Facebook?

The form could be removed easily enough before going live with the site. Good Customer Service involves listening to/reading all comments then making appropriate changes.

Just a thought.

Hmm...did the site just go Live? Has the same look and feel as SaberParts.

I guess the only thing I think customers will find challenging, is what their saber will actually look like based on the options they pick. For example, what does Vermilion Powder Coat look like? Red with sparkles in it? Adding some pics of each finish will go a long way.

EDIT: Well I spoke too soon. Seems there is a spot to show finishes. But would be better if each saber could be shown. I wonder if they could do something similar to what Oakley does in their Customs section. You can adjust the colors / settings to see what the final product will look like. It could be an extension of the ASP modeller I suppose.
