I am glad I bought these. Strong, sturdy and will do the job in self defense, I just hope I won’t have to use them because I have a pretty mean swing!
For a short baton, its heavy and solid; no rattling of telescope joints. Does require a solid impact strike to a hard surface with heel to retract. For the price, the quality is more than I expected. Grip is solid rubber with good gripping surface, finish is clean. Would not want to be on the other end of this.
100% satisfied with the 16” baton. Perfect for my job as personal self defense tool.
As a personal defense weapon I am very satisfied. It is easily carried and concealed in a variety of body locations. With a fair amount of initial action it has become very easily extendible and collapsible. The grip is very good. The "16" inches is quite a reachable distance and very effective.
I hope I can deploy my baton as quickly as BW delivered it!!!
