Easily carried and readily available, ASP Friction Loc Batons have an incredible psychological deterrence and unparalleled control potential. The premium materials, exceptional workmanship and flawless function of the ASP Friction Loc set it apart from all others in quality, durability and performance.

Airweight Baton Advantage:

Weighing approximately 45% less than comparable steel batons, the ASP Airweight loses only 2% of the striking potential of its heavier counterpart. The 7075 aluminum tubing for the baton is custom fabricated to ASP specifications. This is the same alloy that is used in the receiver of the M16. It is extremely strong. The striking surface of the Airweight is 4140 steel tubing. In addition to being noticeably lighter, ASP Airweights move more rapidly than steel batons. They allow a faster “bridge” between strikes.

Batons have evolved over the years and engineers at ASP have determined that by having slightly more overlap from one tube to another, it increases the strength of the baton. Although the individual tubes will add up to 16", the overlap will slightly reduce the overall length.

Very good duty type and belt carry baton
This is belt type carry baton that requires a hard strike on a concrete type surface to collapse. Very lightweight and the foam makes wielding it very comfortable. I teamed it up with the ASP Bust A Cap Tactical Glass Breaker and the side break scabbard for ASP 16 inch batons. For me it is a trifecta of casual/plainclothes, duty/off duty belt carry personal impact tool.

Good Small Baton for belt carry.
I also have the ASP Agent and ASP P12 all carried by KnifeCenter. This is the only baton in the ones I just listed that will accept the optional accessory Bust A Cap Tactical Glass Breaking Cap for ASP Batons and this will fit the ASP Black Sidebreak Scabbard Rotating Belt Loop for 16" Baton. This makes it a very good choice for EDC belt carry. The ASP Agent and P12 are for pocket type carry situations. This baton does require a hard strike on a concrete type surface to collapse it making practice in deploying and training a bit tedious. Good comfortable foam grip makes wielding it easy and controllable. Coupled with the Bust A Cap accessory you can deliver some effective strikes. Price is right for an EDC belt carry tool for duty use and walking the doggies.
