  • Baton switch!

    What do you all think is preferable, the Monadnock (MON-1102)
    Model PR-24FX 24" Aluminum Reinforced Epoxy Expandable Baton or the Monandock non-expand. 24" Aluminium baton (Both with side handles)? What are the LAPD mandated to use now?

    Alll I know is that my Monandock baton DOES NOT lock 3/4 times I expand it. Junk

      I have both. The expandable pr24 is neat, but it's not very good. It's much harder to lock out than a straight expandable. I either use the 26" autolock expandable, or my old school metal PR24.

        In 8 years, i have never really had to use my expandable baton? Now that i read that, it does sound strange, but just haven't encountered a situation yet that would require the use?

          The Monadnock is the best expandable baton out there. What your experiencing is the bounce back when you flip it open with force. When this happens your forward swing to strike will lock it in mid stream. You'll hear it click as you swing.

          I'll take that one minor flaw so that I know once it's locked it's staying locked until I dissengage it.

          I had to carry the regular PR-24 for a while. Everyone was issued one and no one carried it because it was to big. Try running after someone with it and you'll hate it.

          The engaging of an expandable baton has the same effect as the racking of a shotgun. It's the universal language that says something bad is about to happen
          Due to the Juvenile bickering and annoying trolling committed by members of this forum I have started an igore list. If your name is listed below I can't see you.

            The ASP beats the Monadnock hands down.

              I've been around awhile. I'll keep my PR-24 and let the rookies wonder what it is.

                Get a standard PR-24 and find (good luck with this) a metal baton ring. Every time you draw your baton or hang it, it'll sound like a big *** sword.

                  My 21" expandable ASP worked great the other night on a guy that was resisting .
