The Mini-Well Vortx® model is a popular toy. It is fun for children, and appeals to parents because it encourages saving money and scientific discovery. You can move it in a circular motion to create centrifugal force and make the coins climb back UP the funnel. Our “Student Guide” includes lessons about the physics of the funnel, planetary orbits, tornados, and whirlpools.

Following is a list of the Divnick International family of companies and product lines.
Play the whole game with just one club. The transmission adjusts to all the traditional lofts, plus half-lofts. You can also include your name or corporate logo.
Divnick was a pioneer in the VOIP (Voice Over Internet Protocol) industry. He founded Voxwire in 2002 and developed it into one of the premier online virtual meeting room providers in the world. Divnick also licensed the technology to other resellers and eventually sold Voxwire. Virtual meetings and VOIP technology are now used by millions of people, businesses, schools, churches, and governments around the world with companies like Zoom, Microsoft Teams, Webex, and Go To Meeting.
Our proprietary boat lifts offer many benefits not found on other lifts. Unlike sloping ramps, they operate straight up and down which allows your ski boat, wakeboard boat, or fishing boat to be loaded backwards if you need to work on the engine, prop, or outdrive.
An added benefit is that the lift becomes a submersible swim platform for family fun, or reading a book on a hot day while sitting in a submerged chair!
We have created two styles of innovative after-market PWC Rails for houseboats, yachts, private docks and piers. These include Ride-On-Self-Leveling models that would make James Bond jealous, and Winch-Up models that mount on swim platforms and tilt up out of the way when not in use.

(PWC is short for “Personal Water Craft” such as Seadoos, Yamaha Waverunners, Polaris, Kawasaki, and other jet skis)
Presentation to PGA Industry – by Steve Divnick
It has been my privilege to participate in golf industry leadership meetings over the years. I get to meet with a lot of interesting people along the way.
I recently spoke at the annual PGA Show in Orlando about how my telescopic clubs can lead to more rounds played. The golf industry is experiencing a persistent decline with many course closures and the overall industry losses. They are desperately trying to appeal to younger golfers to replace the aging Baby Boomers. Our clubs can help get more people out on the course in a number of ways. I focused on four areas: golfers who travel, seniors, the convenience of playing a quick 9 holes and its appeal to younger people, and conducting 1-club tournaments using the Divnick Whole-In-One Adjustable club.
- Golfers who travel by air are leaving their full sets at home because of how expensive it is to pay the bag fees or to ship their clubs ahead. Our telescopic clubs travel free…inside the first checked bag.
- Many seniors want to walk the course to get exercise, but carrying or dragging a full bag of clubs is too difficult. Some of our senior customers have provided testimonies about how our clubs have brought them back to the game and even extended their life!
- One of the things the golf industry recognizes is that many people don’t have time to play 18 holes. They are encouraging courses to offer 9-hole rounds. I was also able to highlight how fun and convenient it is to play 9 holes with a single adjustable loft club…and the benefits of keeping it in your car for that quick round.
- One-Club tournaments will attract all golfers, and especially younger golfers who will appreciate the convenience of a single club with a transmission in the head. I encouraged them to organize the events without an emphasis on the USGA Rules that are important for tour players, but not as important when the goal is to have fun in a more social event. Rather, I encouraged them to adopt player-friendly rules such as playing the ball “up” (lift, clean, and place) in the fairway AND rough, only penalizing a stroke for lost balls but not having to go back to the tee, a maximum score of 2 over par for the 1-club tournament, and using the forward tees since the Adjustable 4-iron length club can’t hit as far as a driver.
I also had time to “walk the floor” of the convention.
I carried one of my Telescopic Adjustable Clubs in one hand (collapsed) and the “BIG STIK World’s Longest Driver” in the other (fully extended). At 5 feet long and a head that is nearly double the size of a conventional driver, it attracted a lot of attention.
People constantly stopped me and wanted to see what it felt like. Some of them cleared the isle and took full swings. Of course, that attention is exactly why I carried it. It took all day to walk the convention floor with over 1,000 exhibitors thousands more attendees from around the world.
One of the people who stopped me and took a few swings was Chi Chi Rodríguez, member of the World Golf Hall of Fame. Chi Chi is known as one of the all-time entertaining characters of golf. As he took the driver, he said, “This giant club makes me feel like a small boy, not the big man that I really am!” He’s 5’7”.

Tee It Forward
We encourage fast play (ready golf) and the PGA and USGA recommendation to “Tee It Forward”. It’s simple. If you don’t consistently reach the green, or at least consistently hit it far enough to reach it, then we recommend moving up to the next tees. Forward tees are similar to a handicap…a way to make the game more competitive, reasonably challenging, and more fun.
