Dyno-Flex™ Practice Batons are unique because they are: More Realistic - Dyno-Flex are slender like a real baton, not fat and bulky. More Durable - with Dyno-Flex, broken batons and premature impact blowouts are not possible. Less Traumatic - most practice baton manufactures wrap 1/2" PVC with layers of various foam to create a padded baton. Injuries still occur when direct contact to the skin or muscle exist. As a Full-Contact Weaponary, you'll find that with Dyno-Flex, you may not even need a padded suit.
