Great product. you get better swing and force. If you have a choice between a 21" and 26". Go for the 26"

    usually just whip this bastard out and yell at someone and theyll comply. they still are not positive that you cannot hit them or can you? let them find out...

    A decent product. The nice thing about it is its size. You can always have one on your belt. Having used it several times on extremely combative subjects, I was somewhat disappointed with the results. It worked well requiring only 7 strikes on a large (6'3" 250 Lbs.), combative alcohol impaired male. However, I have gotten much better results with a standard straight 26" cocoa-bola wood baton. Don't get me wrong, I still carry the ASP on my belt so I always have something but anytime I get outta the car I also take my straight baton as well. Since all my beat partners only carried the ASP, the suspects would not see that they had an impact weapon and when I would walk up (6'6" 280 Lbs) with the straight baton on my belt most of them would comment that they don't want to mess with me.

    Only one I carry now. I want the reach and I can get more power in my swing with it.

    Since the Taser, the only use I have had for it was poking at sleeping drunks or breaking windows

    a decent baton, but I like the 21" better

    I like all the ASP products. short people and detectives usually go for the 21', but most others go for the 26'. I think, the bigger the better. The extra 5' helps with a perp who has a large knife. I hate having to shoot them when their real problem is a mental problem.

    As a "short" guy, I preferred the 26" reach...with the Federal style foam handle...

    Great product. I added the larger but cap to mine, and like it even more. Gives a little more to grip onto when deploying it.

    I like my straight baton. ASP is good and compact.

    I miss the Beaver Tail sap I started my career with, but for a relatively light, compact and easily deployable PDW this has been a good compliance tool. Not great for windows, though.

    Carried one for 8 years before getting to use it on a suspect. It only took one swing to the thigh to bring them down. Worked great. Once the taser came to our department my baton went in the console of my car. I only used it once in 8 years. I would recommend it, but i got rid of mine because it served me no purpose.

    Sometimes you just gotta hit something. I like it, in same ways its been more useful than my taser.
