Pros: Weight, Balance, Construction, Materials
Best short stick on the market.
This is perfect for when you need a baton but you only have the ability to conceal a pocket stick. This is heavier and tougher than my Aluminum ASP50 even though it is much smaller. It has a hard steel tip which is a huge improvement over the eraser tip on the A50, but it still has the fast opening action and fast retractability of the ASP Agent System. Compared to the S&W 12 friction lock baton it is heavier, and has a smooth tip compared to the 90 degree edges on the S&W. The tip also protrudes when closed making it an excellent pocket stick. I would say it is barely capable of delivering law enforcement approved strikes to the quads and deltoids (if you are 200lbs plus and mostly muscle). It gives you just enough length to knuckle tap an aggressor with a decent size pocket knife. This weapon is going to be much more effective using serious Yawara Ju-Jutsu, and Kali technique in situations where you are trying to survive, not preserve your assailants good looks. In the case of a dog attack this is something other than your hands or pepper that is less than lethal, but it is short and isn't going to give you a lot of room for error. Bottom line this is an expanding pocket stick, but it is the best expanding pocket stick you're going to find.
