    Default The Answer Whistle

    Any feedback on this whistle for Field Trial work?

    Love it. I have had NO problems with the dogs hearing it at distances. It is much easier to blow, no back pressure with the pea. Unlike the Green Monster, when I need to send a message of urgency to the dog, it works great with The Answer.

    I like it, the dog seems to hear it well. I can regulate the tone better than I can with a green monster.

    I like it because it is easier to get that quick follow up whistle if need be.

    The only bad thing about it, is if you get "stressed" and try and force too much air through it, you can cause it to "tweek out." Definately not for a handler who panics....
