    S&W is good.
    Peerless is good.
    They seem to be the two main ones around here.

    The S&W have the double lock feature tight next to to where the key goes. If you ever get the cuffs on upside down, it can be a trick to get them off.

    The Peerless have the double lock feature on the side, so if the keyhole is up or down it doesn't matter.

    It doesn't sound like a big deal until you get some whacked out physco methhead throwing a fit and you need to takes his/her cuffs off for some reason.

    I have several of each. You need to pay attention to which way is up and it can be difficult in the dark.
    I would rather stand against the cannons of the wicked than against the prayers of the righteous.

    peerless , be they standard or rollerchained go with the best . It will pay off in the long run of abuse cuffs take .
    Make sure you get full value out of today , Do something worthwhile, because what you do today will cost you one day off the rest of your life .
    We only begin to understand folks after we stop and think .

    Criminals are looking for victims, not opponents.

    The ASP Hinge or the PEERLESS # 801 are hard to beat.

    Peerless hinged are what I used to use. Bad guys don't like the hinged cuff's. They don't allow the wearer to move around too much.

    I have a bunch of different cuffs, I carry a set of hinged and a set of chained.

    I've found the chained are easier to get on a suspect during a fight, but the hinged are far more secure. It also comes in handy to have at least one chained set for fat guys.

    The bigger name brands are fine, I like Peerless the best but end up using S&W the most simply because I have a ton of them. I dont like the ASP brand, they are to bulky. They seem like they were furred lined at one time.

    At my job we only allow Peerless or S&W chained cuffs. If extra security is needed we add leg shackles and a transport belt. Hinged cuffs are implicated in more nerve injuries than are the chained.

    I mean i carry set of model 100's and a set of 300's but i need a reserve set. Can never have too many sets of cuffs when called to a block fight or dorm or if need be a Domestic Disturbance. so keep them coming. I think the Mil issued me a set of SW M100 but i don't know how far i would trust them tho becuase of previous use.

    Back when I was a Navy Master at arms and base shore patrol we liked Peerless the best. Now, I couldn't say.
