Weighing approximately 45% less than comparable steel batons, the ASP Duratec Airweight loses only 2% of the striking potential of its heavier counterpart. The 7075 aluminum tubing for the baton is custom fabricated to ASP specifications. This is the same alloy that is used in the receiver of the M16. It is extremely strong.
The striking surface of the Duratec Airweight is 4140 steel tubing. In addition to being noticeably lighter, ASP Baton Duratecs move more rapidly than steel batons. They allow a faster “bridge” between strikes.
No other company produces a lightweight expandable baton with the compactness, strength and striking potential of the ASP Duratec Airweight and Airweight Batons.
