ASP 16" Compact Clip-On Expandable Baton features:
I haven't had to use this yet, and I hope I never do, but I'm very impressed with the quality and pleased with the purchase. My only minor complaint is that it is hard to retract when extended forcefully, and requires quite a lot of tapping on a hard, preferable concrete, surface to loosen up. This was expected, though, so it's no surprise.
The 16" is much shorter than 21" if you never compared them, they are almost a palm's length apart. This compact design is also thinner on the grip. The clip is plastic (unlike shown in the thumbnail), I advise don't rely on it.
But the advantage is size and weight, it looks and weight like a 2xAA batteries flashlight, very easy to bring it with you in almost any clothing.
The downside is, you can not use add-on such as "glass breaker end cap" (#BA152), due to its different-than-standard-baton structure.
Overall it is a very good EDC beating stick. Nothing tactical thou.
Its a simple device. I would suggest a lil penetrating oil to keep it working well. You can remove the end and adjust the tension if needed. The clip is removable/adjustable. Good for concealment or smaller hands. Fits in a pocket easily. Check your state laws before purchasing such a device.
I liked the compactness and expandable feature of this baton, as well as the clip-on feature. However, when I tried to open it, it took several tries and some black stuff rubbed off on my hands when I tried to open and close it. It took over 20 tries to close it. I had a collapsible baton previously, which was lost in a cross-country move. I'm 5'0" tall, so need something compact and expandable/collapsible. The search continues as I will be returning this item.
The P 16 is THE perfect size for concealability and effective reach. Just got the baton today, and it fits nicely in my jeans pocket, or cargo shorts pocket. The adjustable clip keeps the P 16 accessible. Must try it!!!
