  • Rapid rotation baton

    It reminds me of the Orcutt Police Nunchaku or OPN. I remember being issued a pair of OPNs, but never used them. I turned them back in after a year. I felt the OPNs were kind of a fad. It did not take off like the collapsible batons. The Rapid Rotation Baton seems like a fad. I am sure if works really well for the person who takes the time to master it, kind of like the OPNs. Personal, I rather have the my collapsible baton.
    I would be curious to see who is using the Rapid Rotation Baton, how many officer in that department are using it, and how many officer in that department are using the collapsible batons or a baton instead of the Rapid Rotation Baton. Same goes with the OPNs.

      I don't see how anyone could sit in a patrol car with that...looks very uncomfortable.

        I find all batons to be worthless. Fist or taser works for me.

          You never get itches under your vest or have something stuck under a car?

                  A friend told me she saw Tallahassee PD wearing the RRB a few years after the video first came out.

                      Are you carrying it on duty, UnivPD? Any training program? Agency adoption? Inquiring minds want to know!

                        No, my agency is not going to authorize it.

                          Being the guy who helped torpedo semi-automatic shotguns, laser sights, and the Walther PPK as an off duty weapon at my former agency, I don't necessarily disagree with your department, but I would be intrigued to know how the RRB works in real life. In this day and age of convenience (e.g.: ASP and other expandable batons), I think an RRB would be a hard sell to an agency or the troops. It does seem like it might offer some advantages as a baton, but would be a literal pain in the neck to carry.

                            So, basically it's a sai, the weapon of choice of Raphael from the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles. And the recommended method of wearing it is across your spine. No risk then of falling backwards and becoming an instant paraplegic.

                              Apart from the risk of injury in a fall, I can't imagine riding in a cruiser with a baton wedged between my back and the seat. Even with a ballistic vest, that would have to be uncomfortable.
