Side handle batons have been around for many years. Although ASP Expandables have replaced them in many jurisdictions, they are still very popular. This new model we have is one of the best we have seen. It has a checkered-rubber grip molded into the plastic. This gives you a secure grip when you are using the short end as a handle. This model also has a larger stop made onto the top of the side handle grip. The redesigning of this hard plastic unit has brought about some major improvements. PayPal can not be used to purchase side handle batons.
