I purchased the 21” which is actually long and has a long handle. Yet it’s still compact enough for me to carry on the side pocket of my backpack. It’s great quality. You can’t go wrong with anything Smith&Wesson.
Like other reviews the baton is well made and opens very easily. But I did have trouble getting it closed and my husband had to do that for me. That will take a little practice.
Works well and great price! Shipping was fast and I was kept updated!
Perfect machine for the money. As impresdive as higher end more expensive models. Love the engraving.
I bought this baton with great expectation because Smith and Wesson should have the best there is. The baton is indeed very well made, but difficult to deploy and retract! I could not get the baton to deploy and once we managed to get that working, it took some serious effort to get it to retract. I will work with it and hope the deployment will become easier for me to master or I will pass it on to someone that has more strength. In a dire situation you need a baton that is ready in a snap or you will not make it.
