This baton is very solid deploying the baton is easy with one hand. Maneuverability is excellent and it feels balanced. Will deliver a mighty blow.
This was the 4th baton purchased from this company. This baton is the second one of these I purchased and I like it a lot. This company ship as promised, excellent customer service!
If you're a normal regular civilian, maybe a dog walker, or regularly walk at night. This is the one you need. This size too. Just order it.
You don't need the more expensive ones unless you're a cop, private security, or have very weak wrists. Because the only difference between them, besides better steel, which is sort of unnecessary, is that you can more easily close the baton. This baton must be slammed into the ground to close it (hints the part about weak wrists) instead of just doing it casually with your hands. It's lame having to close it like this and makes you look like a dork. But it's not worth the extra money to most people unless a baton is relevant to your occupation and you need to look professional after a beat down.
The smaller sizes are for in car use only tbh. Unless for some reason it's a gift for a child or dwarf, I suppose. Anyone over 4'8 is not going to like the short ones.
Just what I expected. Easy to store and available in my truck.
