    rceout is not just another inner glove on the market. The anatomy of the glove combines functionality, design and style into one glove --- one very important glove. Our hands are critical to our game. Over time, our glove hand takes a beating from constant pounding of baseballs and softballs. The Forceout has been engineered to protect the most vulnerable parts of your hand while allowing you to stay in touch with your mitt.

    Our glove will continue to evolve with tomorrow's players in mind both on the baseball and softball diamond. Functionality, design and style will always be the most important elements of Forceout. Our patent pending gloves are designed by people who know what it feels like to be on the field. Enjoy your new Force

    n 2009, while Jason was playing for the Pittsburgh Pirates against our hometown Milwaukee Brewers, I was driving him up to Miller Park for a game that day.

We quickly found that there had been studies done on ball-to-glove impact and the affects on the hand over time --- it was actually a real affliction. We knew tha






1.2 Million on Delta Hawk. Was it a Good Investment?

From: Racine JT February 10, 2011


Thursday the Redevelopment Authority of Racine unanimously approved DeltaHawk's request for $1.2 million in low-interest loans, over three years, in exchange for creating at least 100 new jobs.


The loan, from an economic development fund, can become partially or even totally forgivable if the company surpasses 100 new jobs. City Development Director Brian O'Connell said $10,715 will be sliced off the principal for every job created past 100.


The state Department of Commerce will provide $720,000 in loans to DeltaHawk.

On Thursday, DeltaHawk officials demonstrated their engine before about 40 to 50 Chinese investors outside the Discovery Center in Milwaukee. The full group, named PiYi, consists of about 100 Chinese investors representing a pool of about $1 billion,


The company seeks another $5 million in investment money. That amount, Smiley said, “gets us into production” of the initial, four-cylinder engine. That amount would also finish development of that engine, get it FAA-certified and begin development of the next engine, a V-8.


Aviation Blog Site:


DH has been "moving forward" for longer than it took to land on the moon (literally). This is a classic case of an under-managed, under-funded company trying to eek out a path as a mom & pop in a "3-ultra" environment (ultra capital-intensive, ultra high-risk, ultra low-volume).


One need look no further than the challenges experienced by Eggenfellner and Thielert using proven engines designed, built and supported by $multibillion manufacturers with millions of engines in the field. The experience of DeltaHawk illustrates the monumental challenge of giving birth to a clean-sheet engine design, let alone in an unforgiving environment such as aviation.


DH is proof that "simple" is anything but.


That being said, I am hopeful that someone will rescue the company from itself .... despite the inherently nasty vibration profiles of V4 configuration, the concept is the most viable among all new purpose-built power plants in light recip aviation.


As for DH being ready for installation on RV's or anything else, steer clear. There are many years of testing ahead....assuming they make it that far. DH will surely fade into history (soon) unless it is acquired by a large well-funded company familiar with the peculiar travails of aviation. Until owners/management of DH come to grips with the situation, DH will languish until it dies from starvation of capital and loss of credibility, one of which is curable, the other is not.
