Monadnock AutoLock® X3™ 26" Baton w/ Power Safety Tip:
The Monadnock AutoLock® X3™ expandable baton is the latest innovation in impact devices. The AutoLock® X3 baton features many improvements in the already impressive AutoLock baton series. Notable improvements include an updated cam and stainless-steel ball bearing design which offers reliably consistent locking action and better stability with a solid feel when expanded. Monadnock added a plastic nose on the baton handle that ensures a smoother transition when holstering/unholstering. The Monadnock AutoLock® X3 baton has a blackened electroless nickel finish for a tactical and corrosion resistant look. These batons close flawlessly with the push of a button and are sturdy and stable at lockout.
Monadnock X3 batons have two grip types, two cap and two tip options.
Available grips are the standard foam grip and the super grip. The foam grip offers the highest tear strength and is also offered on most friction lock batons. The super grip is a textured rubber grip that offers better grip and retention in adverse conditions.
The safety tip is a standard baton tip encased in hard rubber to ensure a smooth striking surface. Both baton tips are very effective in striking. The power safety tip is a 2” weight encased in rubber designed to enhance striking effects by adding extra weight to the end of the baton.
The optional wedge end cap enhances baton retention and control.
they are nice and sturdy but very difficult to open and even harder to unlock and push in. There has be something that can be done about the unlocking. My wife and daughter has to hit it on the ground multiple times to get it to unlocked and sometimes it still does not unlock and fold.
I bought for my wife and teenager but will likely have to get another brand that works easier. Do not recommend this brand for women or girls.
Great quality and feels and works exactly as I was expecting. I will definitely recommend.
I enjoy the baton and it's very comfortable. It does take a little work to get it to sling out easily. But after it get broke in it is one of the best. The only other thing it could use is a lanyard but then it wouldn't be quick action first thing.
Nice weight, good balance. But tip is great for an extra punch when it makes contact. Super grip is amazing!
My old baton was a friction Monadnock. This push button function is great. Though I thought it would be easier to close. Extremely fast shipping. Love the personal engraving... prevents the others from claiming it.
I enjoy the 26" length, but wish that the baton holder was in Basket Weave and also sat lower in the holder with a little more tension. The baton sits almost in my arm pit. ha
