ASP52222: 16" Clip-On Airweight Baton
ASP
 
The P12 and P16 Batons provide administrators, investigators and undercover operators with an Every Day Carry (EDC) Friction Loc® Baton. Each expandable design provides 4140 striking power. These are easy carry batons with the world class striking potential of an ASP impact weapon. Each is fabricated using ASP materials and ASP manufacturing techniques. They are finished using ASP coatings. Each P Series Baton is produced to the same standard of quality that has been adopted by police professionals in over 80 countries around the world.

The P12 and P16 are concealable. A 4140 striking surface is combined with a forged to shape 7075 T6 aluminum middle shaft and precision machined handle. The grip is fine line, Crosstec knurled with spiral micro grooves. Rings accept Snap Loc™ clips. Batons can be carried tip up or tip down. The clip can be adjusted to a variety of positions along the handle to enhance concealment or ease presentation. Whatever the activity, these batons are easily carried and rapidly presented. A constant companion for control and defense. Not compatible with replacement end caps. 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. Made in the USA.

Light... good or bad?
Good quality. Yes, the clip is cheap plastic but does the job. I actually think it improves the grip on the skinny handle somewhat. The checkering on the grip helps but its too shallow (sharp but shallow). They should design it where a robust clip is a part of the grip. Very light. I'm no weapons expert, but just pure physics dictates that a lighter blunt object does not impact as hard as a heavier object. This lightness does allow the swing to be pretty fast (almost like knife strokes). Very thin, especially the striking end rod. This lessens the surface area on the struck part of the body. This thin-ness along with higher speed strikes will increase the chance of skin cuts (will not look good in self-defense scenario if the "attacker" is covered in blood). Just things to keep in mind if you're thinking of using it more "regularly" as opposed to 'hope I never get to use it' type of carry, which is the category that I'm in.

Baton
Baton got stuck in the open position. The only way I could close it was with a hammer. Now stuck again . Very disappointed

Light as hell
This really doesn't feel like 6.4oz, a lot lighter than the cheap stuff you get on amazon. Bought it for security work, and immediately took the place of my $20 fury 21" baton, as expected of ASP. The only thing I'd say sucks about this baton is the plastic clip, I'd take the old metal clip over this anytime. It rotates easily and feels bulky & cheap, the only thing keeping it on the baton is a plastic strip that is completely separable from the clip itself. I replaced mine with a Thrunite TN12 clip, still a bit uncomfortable, but feels a lot sturdier than the factory clip.
