Pros: Balance, None
Well, I was going to use this for general self defense, but I guess I underestimated how extendable the baton is. Upon the seventh time flicking it out, the top piece came off, the entire six inch section, and bounced off the floor hitting me in the leg. Now it possible I just got a fluke. Or its possible that you get what you pay for. I don't like leaving bad reviews, but I can't really find anything good about a product that works against me. If you want to take the chance, go for it. Your money, not mine. Otherwise, if you take your self defense weapons seriously, spend some more money, and get something reliable.
