The ASP Talon Airweight baton is a revolutionary new design from ASP that couples functionality with lightweight design. The Standard Talon baton is made of 4140 Steel; The Airweight Talon combines the light weight benefits of 7075 Grade Aluminum with 4140 Steel. The standard ASP batons open with the flick of your wrist and close by bringing the tip down on a hard surface to break the friction lock.

With the Airweight Talon you can discreetly expand the baton by pulling on the extended tip until it locks in place. You can also expand it with a quick snapping movement of your wrist for a more psychological advantage! This push button, Disc Loc design allows officers to easily expand the baton in tight spaces where a traditional friction loc baton may present a challenge.

To easily and discretely close the Talon you simply depress the button in the endcap and press the tip against any solid object such as your hand or belt. Closing the baton is easily accomplished with only one hand.

The revolutionary design of the Airweight Talon uses two opposing discs that cam into an internal groove that is machined right into each tube. The lock mechanism consists of only 9 parts. The function is simple, solid and secure. The premium materials and exceptional workmanship is what officers have come to expect from ASP. This baton has the quality, durability and performance seen throughout the entire line of ASP products.

Cerakote Finish

The Talon Baton is protected by a Cerakote finish. It is an industrial grade ceramic coating that is hard, durable and resists corrosion and abrasion. It was developed for military and law enforcement firearms and presents a low profile and wears well against repeated use.

To apply the finish the surface is blasted with 100 grit aluminum oxide. Then the finish is mixed with a hardener and sprayed on at a thickness of .001″. It is then cured in a 250 degree oven for two hours.

    Excellent baton. Exactly what I wanted. Tried another baton from lower priced ASP product line before this one and was disappointed with quality. No qualms whatsoever with quality of this model. Was worried that 24″ would be too big. It isn’t. Was worried that aluminum would be too flimsy. It isn’t. Can be closed without slamming it into the ground like a maniac. Buy with confidence.

    This baton is better than I expected! Having owned AR-15s for years, the anodized aluminum handle and middle tube feels very familiar and very high quality. It locks into place firmly and collapses much easier than friction lock batons.
    I bought the 60 cm (24”) AIrweight model, and I carry it concealed in my front pocket or waistband, depending on situation. Even this model is easily concealable and comfortable to carry (it’s lighter than my S&W 642 snubbie).
    I can’t say enough about Miles Tactical and their customer service! I feel like this baton will last a lifetime, but if I need another one I’ll come back here!

    These ASP batons are the Cadillacs of the baton world. The ASP airweight talon (26″) is very light weight and the push button is so, so nice to have. I have a friction steel baton – it’s a beast, but it is noticeably heavier and you of course have to bang it on a hard surface which I find as less convenient and less tactical (ie – loud thud). I also purchased the ASP Agent Baton (16″) – easily fits in your pocket, airweight, push button, very nice. And with both transactions, MilesTactical.com / Miles Tactical did an excellent job!

    Lightweight, but still feels substantial in hand. Extends smoothly with a flick of the wrist. Collapses with a little force once the button is pushed. Baton was purchased as a defense against a charging dog when I’m clipped in to my road bike. I figure this to be quite effective at redirecting the dog to avoid collision, create some space and allow me to outrun the conflict. Collapsed, it fits nicely in a bracket for a hand pump mounted on the down tube. Easy to access and looks inconspicuous. Exactly what I needed. Shipping was fast and free.

    This is some awesome baton. It is absolutely worth the money. I got the 40cm long one and it is perfect to carry with you in the pocket though it’s long enough to defend yourself.

    I used to own a friction lock but it was always difficult to collapse it sometimes. This makes it so much easier and it feels sturdy enough, even though its made from aluminum and not stainless steel

    Even through the baton is light weight, you can really tell it is still quality material and still pack a punch!

    I bought this to ward off any aggressive dogs when I take my dog walking or to the dog park. I want to have more than harsh words and bare hands to break up a dog fight. I am very pleased with the quality of the ASP Airweight Disc Loc Baton. The biggest plus for me is the push button closing. Most of the time I am in grassy areas without hard surfaces to strike the end against for closing. The lighter carrying weight is a plus also.

    This baton performs very well. I have used the Airweight Friction Loc prefer the Disc Loc design better. The baton is well balanced. It expands and retracts easily. Nice product with good design.

    This is a review and comparison of three 26″ products, all of which I rate as five star depending on the application: the “default” steel black chrome friction-loc, the steel Talon disc-loc, and the aluminum Airweight Talon disc-loc. All are incredible quality. I do not work in law enforcement; we just moved next door to a farm and often see coyotes in our yard and on jogging trails nearby so I purchased these for general home defense use.

    The steel friction-loc is the model issued to police departments worldwide. It means business and it works exactly as advertised. If you are not trying to be discreet and just need maximum power, this is it. Because of the weight, this model is really designed to be kept in a scabbard on a duty belt. It is too heavy to comfortably carry in a pocket. The major drawback of this model is that it really takes practice and a concrete or asphalt surface to retract. I’ve been practicing for weeks and I only manage to successfully retract it about half of the time. You really need to slam it into the ground HARD. I tried to show my wife how to retract it but she laughed and said “yeah right”. She will never use this.

    The steel Talon disc-loc weighs about the same as the friction-loc and probably has 99% of the striking force, but it is MUCH more convenient. The button works great. You have to hold the button down really hard and ASP knows what they’re doing, I doubt anyone would ever accidentally retract this while in use. This model is actually 24″ long and it is a bit wider than the friction-loc. Again, because of the weight, this is not optimal to carry in a pocket. My guess is the reason police use the friction-loc is because the disc-loc is more expensive.

    I initially purchased the aluminum Airweight Talon disc-loc for my wife thinking I would prefer the steel, but after several weeks I have decided the aluminum is my personal favorite. According to ASP it maintains 98% of the striking force of the steel yet it is far lighter. The weight seems to be concentrated in the tip which I suppose is what gives it the striking force. It is black and looks exactly like the steel model. When rapidly extended, it makes the same authoritative “clack-CLACK” sound as the steel ones. It can be carried in a pocket without issue. Also, because of the lighter weight, I can swing this many times without feeling any fatigue whereas with the steel ones my arm gets tired after 3-4 swings. Given that my intended target is aggressive wild animals that tend to be quick, I like having the ability to swing repeatedly.

    Overall you can’t go wrong with any full-size ASP baton, but for civilian use my overall recommendation is the Airweight Talon. Sure, it’s not as heavy as the steel, but it is still an incredibly potent defensive tool.

    Both the ASP Talon Disc Loc Baton and the ASP Airweight Talon Baton (18 inches) are exceptional products. They extend and retract very smoothly and are nicely balanced and weighted. I also own a similar Monadnock baton, but the ASP mechanism is superior.

    This is the quintessential baton to own. I have several. Mostly Asp and a Monadnock. This is by far my favorite. Does the same as the previous Talon at half the weight. I carry one in my bag everyday and needed to lighten the load which was completely accomplished with this Asp Air Weight Talon! Bravo! Miles Tactical was awesome to deal with. I had been anticipating this baton for some time. Miles notified me it was in stock. The shipping and communication was fantastic!

    I purchased 2 of the 21″ LeverLoc batons from Miles two weeks ago. (I already own 3, traditional 21″ ASP batons and a 16″, and wanted these LeverLoc’s for each vehicle to allow them to be easier to close.) These caps work as advertised giving me a better control feel when handling the baton, and they have the quality you expect from ASP. An excellent upgrade.
