ASP Talon Baton - T40:
The Talon baton is ASP’s latest and most advanced baton on the market. Ever since their conception, expandable batons have been known as an ASP. ASP has been manufacturing top of the line batons since the early 1990’s and they continue to innovate and improve.
These ASP Batons utilize a patented disc lock to ensure sturdy lockout. These batons also utilize a push button for closure. No more finding a hard surface and beating your baton on the ground to close. Simply depress the button on the end cap and push the telescoping shafts back into the handle.
The Talon batons metal components are constructed of precision machined & heat treated high carbon steel tubing for maximum strength. They are also available in aluminum versions. The baton handle is composed of a foamed vinyl grip protected by a metal front collar.
The push button release of the Talon baton is machined into the end cap. There are two end caps available for the Talon baton. The push button end cap features a recessed button that is compressed to collapse the baton. The cap baton handle makes the whole end of the baton into a button that unlocks the baton for closure.
Manufactured with superior materials and craftsmanship, this baton stands out from other handheld impact weapons. The Talon Baton expands utilizing a Disc Loc system and internal grooving that ensures smooth expansion. The ASP Talon Baton is easily opened with a flick of the wrist, and is closed by compressing the button or cap and pushing it together. This product is ready for use straight out of the packaging. We recommend purchasing the ASP envoy scabbard to ensure easy access and protection.

I'm honestly impressed by the heft and smooth action. It's a massive difference from the f-series in all regard.
The sound of deployment is reminiscent to racking a shotgun, while the frictions are more on par to a small handgun. You also get the same reaction.
My only oddity is that once deployed it rattles like an old Winchester rifle. Not enough to make me believe there's an issue, but do be aware that they do have a tiny amount of play.
Considered heavy, but barely noticed it through a shift fully kitted.
I first bought a baton from a well known gun manufacturer, it was cheap. This asp is fantastic
Since the pandemic, I've noticed many more people walking their (often very large) dogs but lack control. I heal my small dog, but the larger dog Owners routinely allow their dogs to approach us...several occasions were ugly and could have become violent in a hurry. I picked up the T-50 for defensive protection on these walks and hikes. With the help of some online videos, I practiced accessing and employing the baton (I also bought a nylon holster). The first time out walking, a couple was fast-approaching toward me. Having previous encounters with their large standard poodle (~ 70 lbs), I removed the baton from the my holster and "snapped it to its full extension". Although I simply ignored the couple, the sound alone from the baton grabbed their attention. They got the message and immediately reeled their dog in as they passed by with no problem. The push-button release allowed me to discreetly replace the baton in its holster and continue my walk. THIS is why I bought the T-50: it's compact and provides the confidence (and protection) in a commanding way.
Great tool. It’s much lighter than my previous baton and has smooth extension.
Exactly what I was looking for, don't waste your time on cheap batons trust me on this!
