One of our shortest batons is the Purcell. It is only 340 millimeters long. The round handle of the Purcell is made of cork, a natural material that absorbs moisture very well. The shape of the handle makes it very comfortable to hold, depending on the conductor's preferences for holding the baton.
The stick is made of white fiberglass. This is a plastic that has high strength and dimensional stability. The weight of the Purcell baton is 10 grams.
