What is a Telescopic Steel Baton?
Telescopic steel batons have pretty much replaced the old day billy club of law enforcement.

The different sizes of the telescopic batons are 16”, 21”, and the 26”. Your ability to wield the different sizes along with your personal preference would guide your choice of length. This is another reason for experience from training which can help guide your decision. A general rule of thumb, the taller you are the longer the telescopic steel baton you could use effectively.
The baton is easy to hold and will not slip out of your hand since the handle is made of rubber. These rubber grips hold out much better than the older foam grips. After a lot of use the foam grips wear down and will even rip. The rubber grip on the telescopic steel batons last.
