    1st review

    WIth the proper training this can be a very useful product for the patrolman or deputy who may find themselvs in a close quarters or riot encounter.

    I agree that it is too bulky to carry on your person but, in our state prisons... this is a handy little tool when putting together an extraction team. Usually the sound of 5 pairs of boots marching in time together is intimidating enough to disengage a situation.

    Hey, this thing is very good for snaping on a subject. The very effect of the lock sounding off is enough to back up a crowd and giving you the needed space to defend and /or parry an attack or defuse even a situation.

    these things come in very handy for close combat or just to detain someone without getting your own arm tangled up with someone else.

    Have not used any type of PR-24 since USMC. Back then they did not collapse. The PR-24 has more uses then they ASP. I highly recommend this.

    Where do I begin? What a piece of junk! I would never recommend or allow any of my officers to use this thing. One, it's a side handle baton (PR24 for all the Monadnock folks) which, was proven to be a very ineffective striking tool with the Rodney King incident! Its handle is its weakest point, which energy will always find (hint, study energy and how it works...it will always find the weak point or the path of least resistance). Two, its hollow if you get the expandable model....again learn how energy works! What has more resistance, a leg with fat, muscle, ligiments, and dense bone or a hollow tube? The path of least resistance is the hollow tube. I am certified to teach every impact weapon out there, including the ASP! I will never teach a class on this product because it is designed to fail! I am sure that in 1974, when Lon Anderson turned the Okinawa Tonfa into a side handle baton and Monadnock bought the rights, it was the best at the time. But nothing bets a good ole SOLID straight stick!

    The XTS is pretty good, but I preferred the FX model. The XTS has a polycarbonate shaft, where the FX was aluminum. The sound of the shaft expanding was normally enough to get people to move back, but when utilized, I've never had to hit anyone more than once before they decided to comply!

    I have a soft spot in my heart for this baton because it is what I learned baton tactics with in the Corps. I think that it most definitely rates high on the pucker factor. I also like the way it handles. I think it is more versatile and effect than a straight baton. Its only downside is that is it bulky, which makes it a pain to carry around.

    This is not a weapon or a defense tool, it is a waste of space on my belt. Not only is it hollow and has no weight to it, it always extends in its holster unwanted (especially when running) and hits you in the leg. This waste of rubber, plastic and aluminum is issued in my department and unless you are a Martial Artist like myself...this tool has no use for the average Officer. There is no way to fix the extending problem and no way to tighten or loosen it. It also takes up a large amount of space on the belt and is "designed" to be a cross draw weapon...but if you wear a vest and have more than just a gun and cuffs, then it only gets in the way. All the other Officer's just take it of and leave it in the car, just to say they had it when the checked 10-42. WASTE OF MONEY AND SPACE ON YOUR BELT.

    Recently switched to this from my ASP federal 21" baton and I could not be happier. It is great for crowd control situations and me being a smaller guy it is pretty intimidating. Have to give it 4 stars.

    Having used both the PR24 and the ASP, I much prefer this one. The ASP is great if you want to hit someone, but falls down badly if you have to defend yourself. I accept what everyone says about it being bulky but would put up with that any day. There is some variance in between the models, the solid insert ones are by far the best and rapidly encourage people to comply

    Like many before me have said; with just a few hours more training, this baton/control device can be far more effective at suspect control than a baton alone. Combined with the defensive capabilities of this device, its all I'll ever carry, if given a choice.
