The ASP Talon baton is here to set a new standard in the world of baton defense technology. 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 ASP Talon baton you can open it with either a flick of your wrist or pull it open with your hand. This is especially beneficial in tight/ close quarter situations. To close the talon baton you depress the button at the base of the handle and push the tip against any surface. Closing the baton is easily done with only one hand!

Choose your Handle Closure Style

You can chose from Button or Cap closure. With the button style you press the button in the middle of the endcap to release the lock. With the Endcap style you press the entire cap in to close.

The ASP Talon baton is simple in design, strong, durable and can be rapidly deployed. The ASP standard of quality is well known in the law enforcement industry. The Talon baton adds to this reputation with its elegant design, quality workmanship and flawless function.

Note: The expanded length is a little shorter than the models named length.

    There is a lot more improvement over Monadnock AutoLock Baton, less rattle sound. Will see if it have same durability as fraction lock and how long will last without need for repair. One thing is that ASP they should just name it 24 inch instead of 26 inch because it is only 60cm long.
    Baton Defense / Miles Tactical 5 STARS.
    Great communication, fast & free shipping.

    Excellent baton in every way. It is so much easier to collapse than my current ASP baton. The only negative comment I would make is that once extended, the baton has enough play to rattle a little. The looseness is not critical and in my mind is a reasonable trade off for the other features.

    ASP continues to make great reliable, durable products and the Talon baton is no exception. It is a good weight, and quite strong. It is easily deployed and easily closed with the push of a button. I have two of these 21″ batons, opened length varies from 19.5″-20.5″. I ordered the 26″ talon Baton and I am excited to get that soon. I highly recommend this product and this company to make the purchase. Baton Defense are on top of their game! Thanks guys!

    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.

    Really liked the fast shipping and received the package in great condition. I was also impressed with the quality of the baton. In the past, as a police officer, I have had to deploy and use expandable batons in the line of duty with less than desirable results. However, this baton looks and feels very reliable. I am very happy with my purchase.

    Overall great product, tested it out a bit and it was rather smooth. The customer service was amazing! I ordered a scabbard that didn’t quite fit my baton and they emailed me right away to make sure I knew of the recommended scabbard before they mailed it out saving me time money and effort.

    After being attacked by a dog, I decided on the Baton for future defense. This version has a push button to make retraction easier. Glides out smoothly. Solidly built.

    I was truly impressed with the quality of this product. It is af tight fit, well built and threatening enough to ward off an assailant. It could easily break some bones if need be. I have a concealed carry license for my Glock 19 but this provides a reasonable level of alternate defense against an unarmed attack. Highly recommend this for personal use if your state allows, and even if it doesn’t, in today’s world, crack a skull first, ask questions later. Better to be judged by twelve than carried by six.
