Thread Wrap UpgradeFor added beauty and customization of your baton, consider adding a thread-wrapped grip. I carefully wrap a sturdy, nylon thread around the shaft of the baton where it meets the handle. It is then sealed so that it will not unravel. I normally wrap about 3/4" of the shaft, but I can put on more or less thread by request. If you typically hold part of the shaft when you grip your baton, the wrapped grip adds a little bit of texture and a more secure grip. I most often use black thread, but I have many colors available, including forest green (shown in photo), dark blue, red, gold, black & gold, and yellow. If you have a color preference, just let me know.
