NEX 17" Aluminum Push Button Closing Baton:
The Nex Baton is a brand-new design of push button closing batons. These batons are constructed of steel alloys and high strength aluminum for maximum performance in a lighter weight baton. Nex Batons deploy smoothly with the flick of the wrist. Closing the baton is easy, press the button on the end cap and manually close the baton with your hands. The smooth action in deploying, and retracting these batons is unmatched. There is no need to frequently oil or lubricate this baton to achieve smooth operation. This baton can be expanded and retracted 3000 times before it needs additional lubricant.
The Nex Baton has a textured rubber grip. The rubber grip is designed for maximum retention whether it is wet or dry. With the addition of optional accessories such as a glass breaking tip and a retention ring this baton is highly functional. Nex batons open easily and with authority every time and close very smoothly every time with the push of a button.
The NEX vane fan lock design subtly integrates every locking structure into one component, improving strength and reliability. Ingenious simplicity: they disassemble to only 4 components so there are fewer parts that could break. All NEX batons feature solid locking performance, smooth extension and retraction, and convenient assembly and maintenance. NEX batons are manufactured with precision CNC machines to ensure quality and consistency, making every NEX baton equally outstanding.
- Expanded Length: 17"
- Retracted Length: 7.56"
- Weight: 10.23oz
NEX batons will fit in NEX baton holders or the Envoy series baton holders from ASP.
I say 5 stars with little experience, The batton is light and is easily concealed. I forgot I had it in my back pocket even. It opens effortlessly lightning fast. It closes easy too. I hear some you have to hit concrete. Not here, push button close. The lock is positive I can't imagine it closing by accident in an emergency. Lastly, I feel safe with this thing but I don't feel like I'll kill someone if I have to uses it.
Works great, super lightweight. Can barely tell it was added to duty belt. Haven't had to use it yet and hope I don't but will update if that happens.
The 21” Nex Baton is a hybrid of aluminum and steel and so much more suitable IMHO than an all steel one that it is miles above a total steel baton. Power and light weight. The retractable mechanism is flawless and doesn’t need care for over 3000 uses. Love the grip and the balance. Baton Warehouse is a great company with fantastic service and a wonderful selection. I would recommend both the Baton Warehouse and the Nex Baton to anyone!
Good grip, nice balance and feel to it. Opens and closes easily, secure hold until button push - not gonna collapse on you. Actual length extended is 16", not 17" as shown. Not a deal breaker, I wanted a shorter model anyway, but it is a noticeable difference.
I've had batons that require hard contact to contract, and I specifically purchased this one for the button to contract more easily. When I press the button, then press down on the extended baton, it catches rather than being responsive and contracting as it should. It will eventually close, but for a baton that costs 3X the amount of most hard contact batons, I expected better engineering and a smoother, less bothersome mechanism than this. My hard contact baton requires that I strike it on cement (or something of similar hardness) but ultimately closes more easily.
