    All ASP products are made to last. I used a ASP once to fight off a young punk and they work better than you think they would. The drugs he was on had nothing on the ASP to the thigh. He took a couple of good shots then went to the floor. These are a must have for all officers to have.

    They work great when you need to do some damage control. A deputy in my department bent his hitting a guy that was high on pcp and crack. The guy went for his weapon and the fight was on. Needless to say the guy ended up being admitted to the hospital in the critical care unit.

    Dependable blunt force trauma weapon. This little guy has tipped the fight in my favor a few times. Just the extension of the telescoping baton makes the perps stop and rethink their position in the fight.

    I have bent several other batons but my asp works the same or better than when I first bought it.

    I've only had to use it twice. Just drawing it works like a charm. Once a guy dropped a knife when I drew it, and the other time an estranged husband left the scene just from it being drawn.

    When I first switched to the ASP I was leary...I was trained on the PR-24 and really loved it, it saved my tail a couple of time's....after 8 years of rollin with the ASP I would not go back...the psychological aspect of it when its being deployed is awesome...and it handles business, I am on my second one.....LOVE IT

    I don't know if my rating if fair, but it's the only asp I've ever had, so it's not like I'm comparing it to something else. I've only deployed it one, and that was enough. I didn't have to use it... (I would have liked to though). Anyway, I have OC & Asp on belt, and taser on drop holster. Now that I have the taser, I don't see the Asp coming out... but I'll keep it - just in case.

    Been carrying the 21" for years I just upraded to the 26". I like it it just the same. Both are easy to carry and the swivel holster is great.

    When you absolutely have to break every window in a car, accept no substitute. This baton is very lightweight, and easily expanded. I have used it to gain entry to wrecked vehicles, to remove victims, as well as create space for hand to hand combat. Great stick!

    Great tool to have as a less lethal in your force options. If the subject sees you unholster and employ this weapon, it has almost the same impact (visually) as the racking of a shotgun. I know there are those who may disagree, but the person about to get hit with it always thinks twice.

    A great tool. When I've needed it it deploys on an instant, and that's usually all it takes. I won't take it off my belt just because its' uses are few and far between.

    I owned an expandable asp, however it bent severely after a few whacks against the pavement. That's not the type of equipment I'd depend on. My straight baton is much more versatile, and a better deterrent. You would need multiple swings with an asp, whereas a straight baton requires few. The asp is high maintenance, the straight baton is not. The asp is overly priced and is prone to closing at the wrong time. The straight baton has neither of these problems. The only advantage i give the asp is that it is incredible easy to carry all day. When all is said and done, this is an inferior product, and WAYYYYYY overpriced.

    Great tool to have. For the price even better. I bought the larger cap attachment and it works like a charm. not only is it great for a stopper if my hand slips, but it makes a great tool to knock on fingers when confronted with a knife. Just it being on my belt is a deterrent. When deployed that popping sound it makes anybody around really consider what they are about to do. How agile it is, the uses, and attachments that can be fitted onto it.

    One time I had to use it on a young blood who thought he could earn stripes by attacking me (yes that was his reason for assaulting me.) So when he began striking me, and pulled out a pipe, I pulled the asp out, and didn't show his arms or legs any mercy (Especially in that neighborhood where I could have two or more on me in a hot minute.)

    LOVE the ASP baton. The 26 inch is BIG... But I'm a big guy and I know if I was out misbehaving, a big stick carries a big whallop... When i was bouncing that knowledge alone made a lot of people think twice about continuing with their transgressions. The intimidating sound of one of these monsters opening can not even be compared to a 16 or 21... and a 31 oh my jesus... It's still small enough for me to conceal (I'm a defense contractor... I carry stuff other people can't) and ready for quick use.

    Great product.

    My ASP is still pretty new, but my experience and training with it has proven that is well made and should hold up reliably for some time.
    I practice Kali-Silat, so a lot of my training uses 28" rattan sticks. That makes the 26" an excellent choice for me, as the range and distance is something that I'm pretty familiar with.

    In any event, some of you are confined by what a department requires, but for those with the choice, this is a sound decision and good choice.

    Haven't used it much on duty but it does come in handy. Especially when sifting through bins and brush area looking for hidden weapons.

    Never used on a person, but great intimidation technique; when swung with arm then tweaked with the wrist at the end of a swing it breaks concrete. Bad guys see this, think of broken bones, and give full cooperation.
