This is the Rapid Rotation Baton, and it is the best baton I have ever seen for any type of police or law enforcement role. I have used many types of batons over the years and this one is quickly deployable, convenient to carry, great for grappling and control tactics, and great for striking, both at very close ranges and from a distance. Check it out at this link and be sure and watch the video that goes with it. I use this at my job in corrections and love it.

Ya know Vince, I think you're right. We've been using the RRB here at work for about the past 6 months or so. There has been a lot of positive feedback from everybody here at work. Every now and again, you might here something about how its not "big enough" or something along those lines. When responding to a fight, a lot of the "old timers" are used to carrying and using something more along the lines of a riot batton. I even asked one of the guys here at work that acutally was involved in an incident just the other day. In this situation, an inmate grabbed a staff member, and the other staff member responded, using the RRB. When asked about the RRB, the staff member stated that he does like the RRB better than the older sticks... but in that one particular incident, he would have liked to had one of the bigger sticks. I guess the big difference a lot of people saw was that with the RRB, they had to strike a lot more. Overall, the RRB is much more versatile though.. so, with that said... LOL, I'm PRO RRB. Just trying to put up some positive, and negative aspects...
The more you sweat during times of peace, the less you'll bleed during times of war.
