Side handle batons have been around for many years. Although ASP Expandables have replaced them in many jurisdictions, they are still very popular. This new model we have is one of the best we have seen. It has a checkered-rubber grip molded into the plastic. This gives you a secure grip when you are using the short end as a handle. This model also has a larger stop made onto the top of the side handle grip. The redesigning of this hard plastic unit has brought about some major improvements. PayPal can not be used to purchase side handle batons.

As a retired security officer I was replacing my gear to mount in my man cave. This product is the exact weight, length and feel as the baton I carried for nearly 50 years.
Does the job.

Feels good and solid. It's made by Rothco which isn't mentioned in the add. Rothco is known for making good quality budget gear. It works for it's intended purpose and seems like it will last a long time. 4/5 because some of the black hardening coating bleed onto the rubberized grip. You can tell that these where manufactured fast and without much quality control. It's cheap but reliable. I would take this over any collapsible baton.
