Well Fellas, I got my custom Hawk glove today... not exactly what I expected to say the least. Wrong colors in the wrong places, shotty craftsmanship, and... oh yeah... THEY MISPELLED MY NAME! Youd think that was a #1 priority detail when making a CUSTOM glove for someone. Im so damn dissappointed it hurts. AND... I still have not heard back from them.

A HUGE THANK YOU to Molina34, who doesnt work for that 2 bit, dive company anymore, but was still nice enough to help me at least get the glove delivered. At this point, I wish it wouldve stayed missing in the Hawk factory.

Anyone know how to change Fhil to Phil once it is embroidered on a thumb?!?!?!?! Me neither, maybe its time to contact JC about a Rolin.

Unfortunate, but not surprised. If you want excellent craftsmanship and a glove void of defects..........I would discourage you from buying a glove made in MX. Too many other viable options.

I believe that Molina34 was/is the owner of Hawk baseball.
He definitely portrayed himself as the owner in several posts on this form.

Molina34 also has some Hawk gloves for sale on eBay right now.

I think somebody owes you a refund for that glove.

I actually emailed him through his eBay postings, and his responses were INSTANT. In fact, he told me that he went over to the Hawk factory, found my glove already boxed up, and took it to DHL personally. All of this within a few hours of emailing him. He had a me a tracking number by the end of teh evening.

He did say in a few emails back and forth that he left the company because he was having some problems with his employees. I believe him. I emailed again when I got the glove and expressed my dissappointment, and he promptly repsonded again.

Arg... sell me a Rolin, and spell my freaking name right when you do it PLEASE

LMK if you want to place an order for a custom Rolin.

I have an order that went into the factory yesterday. I can add to it for the next couple of days.

If you like any of the in-stock Rolin gloves that I have for sale on the forum, LMK, and I will give you a screaming deal to help ease some of your glove pain.

WOW!!!!! Ballsout, you're not the only one with a crappy Hawk. Remember me from your last post? I just received my glove yesterday and wrong colors and 6 months too late. There are blemishes everywhere and thread left uncut. I asked for gray laces and got black, asked from name in black and got wine color. Laces are really thin and leather is on the outer shell is very cheap. Laces are not aligned, there is a stain on the palm along with a stain on the outer webbing. What can I say? I got what I paid for. I still think the Rolin brand it the best glove out there hands down and with a great price.

Same thing here, no one is responding to my emails or Facebook messages. When they did respond several weeks ago they said Armando was not longer with the company and now he is mailing me my glove. Seems really shady. NEVER AGAIN!!!!!!!!!!!

Go Rolin.

I filed a claim with PayPal, hopefully I can recoupe some of my money from those bums. In the meantime, Im selling off some of my stock to help pay for a REAL custom. I think my days of rolling the dice with MX brand glove may have come to an end.

I cant believe people ordered from this company without any real feedback. If you want a Mexican glove no doubt Rolin is the way to go

The feedback about Hawk gloves was actually very good. Supposedly some ownership issues came up right around the time that I placed my order... thats where things went south.
