Nice baton. Very comparable to ASP sentry. I was buying the Sentry for my personnel at my security firm. Now likely switch to this. Less expensive, appears to be as good, and comes with a scabbard/holder.
This baton is well made and sturdy. Hopefully I never have to use it, but, I feel better knowing it's there if I need it.
I don't use the sheath, I carry this in the console pocket next to my seat, fits perfectly.
Delivery was quick, the baton looks good, and works as expected.
The baton is great, bo problems and a good value. The sheath is not great, so will need to buy a better one.
This is the first baton for me. We travel in our motorhome and walking the dog one evening was nearly attacked by a large dog. This was originally purchased as a defensive weapon for another such occurrence. Baton is solid, has a good grip, feels significant in the hand, and locks in place solidly. It does take a significant force to retract which I suspect is a positive. It would be better for concealment if it could be and inch or two shorter but I’m not sure that’s possible with length. This is a good defensive substitute for states not allowing concealed carry with the permits I carry. As of now, I’m glad I choose this model.
