Batons are also known as billy clubs, sticks or nightsticks. They have been around since the mid-1800s when police used them as an offensive weapon. Nowadays they are used as a defensive weapon and basically fall and two categories: electrified or stun batons and non-electrified.
The non-electrified batons come in either fixed length or expandable. The expandable versions can be extended up to as much as 32 inches at the press of a button or a flick of the wrist. Non-electrified batons are made of durable materials such as Lexan, stainless steel, fiberglass or polycarbonate materials. Some newer ones are made out of aircraft grade aluminum tubing.
The reason these non-electrified batons need to be so durable is because they are mostly used for striking purposes.
ASP Sentry expandable batons are a good example of non-electrified expandable batons. They are made out of high quality 4130 steel shaft, carbon steel tip and a black nickel finish. They offer a less expensive alternative to other ASP Friction Loc expandable batons.
