I bought this baton to take on dog walks incase the need for defense against unleashed, aggressive dogs arises again. My dog is only 25 lbs. and wouldn't have much of a chance against larger dogs. I hope to never use it but past experience tells me it will come in handy one day, along with my new can of pepper spray. The baton is just small enough to carry in my pants pocket so I don't look like someone who's ready to rumble. Any dog that chomps down on this thing will likely crack a tooth or two.
This is a troubled world that we live in. This defensive product provides a manner to assist me in protecting my family. While I hope I never have to actually use it, it provides me with a sense of security.
I WAS VERY MUCH PLEASED AND SATISFIED.
The baton was well made very sturdy rigid, it extended relatively easily but for me I had a difficult time collapsing it. Sometimes it would do it easy other times it was difficult. I actually sold that to a fellow colleague and I purchased one that was spring loaded that opens perfectly and collapsed way easier than this particular model. But I would still recommend as it was comfortable to carry and deployed as almost all other batons do and when it was deployed it locked into place correctly and there was actually nothing wrong with it just for me I wanted something a little different....
Stiff and unyielding at first. But worked in and functions nicely.
