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.
A decent unit. I've had a Monadnock before. This baton is lighter, being aluminum. It doesn't have bearings but it does lock and retract just as positively. The grip feels great in your hand and the ridge @ the base is a big plus in retention. I haven't had to conk anyone with it yet but when I tap my own skull it feels like it can do some damage- the baton that is. It makes a slight whistling sound when you open and close it which @ first I thought was because of some grit metal or dust in the mechanism so naturally I opened it up for a cleaning but i looks like the sound is due to the microstructure of the metal finish, which you'll either like, hate, or fell neutral towards- the sound that is. The tip is metal, flush with the shaft, and unscrews easily enough. If i whack someone with it and it still closes like new then I'll come back n give the 5fth star.
Wow. I was a little skeptical, but this baton is awesome. Very smooth and very light, but also well made. It is a solid baton with the best autolock system hands down. I would love to see this brand become a top brand alongside Monadnock. An excellent choice and a purchase you won't be disappointed with.
This baton is the best one I've purchased so far. Easy to deploy, very easy to close. No need to pound the pavement to close
This is the sexiest baton I’ve ever owned. It basically glides out, and feels lightweight- but powerful.
Absolutely in LOVE! The engraving is also a nice touch.
Lightweight, expands and retracts as listed. Not intimidating for the user but definitely for anyone on the other end.
