    Default Whistles: Whats everybody using?

    just as the title says...whats everybody using for a whistle?

    currently have a roy gonia classic, but I think I'm going to pick up a new one, probably looking for a pea-less whistle just for working in the winter.

    The Answer .... It is the orange pea-less version of the Mega. Other pea-less whistles are the Dallessese FT and HT whistles.

    I use the small Roy Gonia pealess and pea whistle. Like them both. I do have the other whistles which Sue mentioned and they are good but prefer esp for HRC RG. IMO

    After all this time I have finally found one I can blow! I have had a Green Monster, Gonia Pealess, and two Dallasasse whistles. With all of them, if I did not have time to really concentrate on technique, no telling what was going to come out! My friend Dave Burton let me have a Fox 40 he had laying around, and WOW! It works great for me. No more troubles! I love this thing!

    Acme 210 1/2 and Fox 40. I also keep a couple of spare whistles in both my training bag and blind bag, just in case of loss, etc.
