Product Review: Telescopic Steel Baton
If you haven’t been formally introduced previously, let me introduce you to Mr. Telescopic Steel Baton. Baton, Reader. Reader, Baton.
A telescopic steel baton is neither a high school coach’s whistle, nor a walking stick. We are talking up to 26″ of solid steel thug-bashing pain-on-a-stick. Not to knock personal alarms which do serve their purpose, but nothing beats a solid whack to the ribs, or hobbling blow to the knee quite like a telescopic steel baton. Just ask Nancy Kerrigan.
When fully collapsed and stored, your baton will only take up about 9″, give or take depending on if you purchased the 18″, 21″ or 26″ models. The sizing corresponds to then strength and size of its wielder. A big burly trucker would probably pack a 26″er, a 5′5″ petite woman may prefer the 18″.
But don’t let the difference between the sizes sway you. Each one is going to get the job done with a quickness and cause some serious injury and trouble for any would-be attacker.
Talk about walking softly and carrying a big stick, quite the physical and psychological advantage.
No one is trying to strongarm you into buying self defense products but you have to believe in the statistics spread over the past few years, all pertaining to violence at different levels. Day by day, our environment is coming up with prominent signs of danger.
It used to be the dark damp alleys you had to worry about, now you could be victim of an assault during your leisurely stroll through the park in the middle of the afternoon, or taking your morning jog before work.
Just last week, there was a story in the news about a 26-year-old autistic woman in Toledo, Ohio that was raped on the sidewalk by a 15-year-old thug on her way to the library. This occurred in the middle of the day, with several cars just driving by. The woman was followed by the attacker, knocked to the ground, threatened with scissors, had her sweatpants pulled off, and was raped while yelling for help in broad daylight. The attacker then stole her cell phone as he fled the scene.
Eventually one woman, who had already driven past, gave the incident she just viewed a second though, and decided to call 911.
Of course the police arrived well after the assault and rape was over. It was even reported immediately after the attack, the victim attempted to borrow the cell phone of a man walking down the street to call the cops, and the man refused and kept on walking. La la la, I can’t hear or see you…
Are you serious?
I’m thinking minimum someone should have pulled over along side, laid on the horn for the duration and phoned the police right then and there. Next best, someone armed with pepper spray, a stun gun or perhaps a telescopic steel baton could have intervened and given this punk a working over. Let the cops clean up when they got there.
The juvenile delinquent was found later, and sure enough, it is reported that he suffers from mental issues. As if that wasn’t evident from his public display of aggression…
I am counting a number of people that could use a good wake up whopping to knock some sense into them.
Just a flick the Telescopic Steel Baton and it will automatically extend itself to the maximum attitude-adjusting capacity. This will engage a rather satisfying sound, as the positive locking system snaps into place. This serves a dual purpose, one to let you know your baton is ready for business, and secondly, your soon-to-be target will know he is about to be pummeled. If he had a lick of sense, he might even turn tail and vacate the area right then and there.
In addition, these trusty sidekicks have a couple of other features besides its low public profile and solid steel construction. It in encased in a comfortable foam handle for easy gripping and maneuverability, and it has an optional LED light to double as a flashlight.
Be Safe, Be Prepared, Don’t Just Stand There, Take Some Action.
