Can't Get To The Normal Parker Pens On Their Website

I'm very annoyed but I cannot seem to find the NORMAL parker pens area. I choose my country and then immediately get dumped in the 5th area and can't get out.
Yep, same here. Had to choose 'Other Countries' to not get dumped into that massive advert for the 5th pen.

That worked. Wow, obnoxious setup they have going on. I wonder if they even realize you can't get to other pens if you select US. I guess I'm not sure it matters the rest of their website really sucks. Basically no information, slow, and very difficult to navigate back out from a spot you get into.
It's the same if you click UK... I'm wondering if this isn't some attempt by Parker to push only their new product so they can quietly start paring their catalog down.

I must say that a web site that precludes all other products it offers to promote just one.....with no way out.....is a very poor attempt at marketing.
I'm on their mailing list for feedback and have been for a couple of years. I receive very little mail from Parker. Evidently, they have a part-time marketing department.

I enjoy them all, for quality and innovation. My ten-year-old Vector is
unimpressive. I recently bought an I.M. because it was $13. Positively
disappointing ! It will save me a lot of money, and remind me what Parker
has become. It makes me sad.
(Let's call Katie and Dick. Ledo's and a movie. It will cheer me up. )
