Taser prepares to launch new X2 stun gun

Taser International Inc. is preparing to launch a new stun gun, the X2, this week.

The company will make the announcement on the product, said to be about the size of its current X26 device, on Wednesday morning.

Officials with Scottsdale-based Taser (Nasdaq: TASR) said the device was the result of consulting with its customers about what they were seeking in a stun gun.

“Thousands of officers participated in the design of the X2 through online surveys, interviews, and focus groups,” said Rick Smith, founder and CEO of Taser, in a statement. “The result is a breakthrough device that integrates key features into a simple, compact design optimized for full-time carry. We look forward to sharing the X2 with the world this Wednesday.”

Taser has been rolling out various new products over the past 18 months with mixed results. It is starting to see some traction with its Axon system that acts as a recording device for law enforcement, but its X3, a three-shot stun gun, has yet to see large orders.

if positive comments are not allowed how is it a debate?

If you have something relevant to say, let it be said. I simply recommend that people who wish to post positive comments about the manufacturer do so at the manufacturer's site.
