Easily deployed with a flick of a wrist but must hit hard on stiff surface to close up. Overall it’s a great tactical tool and heavy steel too. Can do a lot of damage. Especially to a thug attacking you.
I was initially concerned that the baton was going to be mediocre, but after receiving it my concerns were I'll conceived. It's a very well made tool which I wish I had back when I was on the job. It extends quickly and with ease. Retraction is easy and simple when performed by the instructions. The baton case is of high quality. I am very impressed with S & W's product. Well done. Mike (Ret.

I purchased the 21” which is actually long and has a long handle. Yet it’s still compact enough for me to carry on the side pocket of my backpack. It’s great quality. You can’t go wrong with anything Smith&Wesson.
Like other reviews the baton is well made and opens very easily. But I did have trouble getting it closed and my husband had to do that for me. That will take a little practice.
Works well and great price! Shipping was fast and I was kept updated!
