5.0 out of 5 stars Highly recommended
The whistle was recommended as the best to buy for Basketball referees. The pea design is not used in basketball and this whistle doesn't have one. It gives a clear, loud, high pitched tone that can be heard in the noisiest of basketball halls. We chose the plastic casing over the stainless as a safety precaution. We had heard of chipped/broken teeth being caused by...

I bought this product as it looked on the surface as a well designed and professional whistle, however once it came I soon learnt otherwise.

This review is from: Classic Fox 40 Coaches/Referees Whistle - One Size (Sports)
The whistle was recommended as the best to buy for Basketball referees. The pea design is not used in basketball and this whistle doesn't have one. It gives a clear, loud, high pitched tone that can be heard in the noisiest of basketball halls. We chose the plastic casing over the stainless as a safety precaution. We had heard of chipped/broken teeth being caused by the stainless one when a player ran into the ref. The plastic one is softer and doesn't appear to have this 'side-effect'.

Recommend you also buy the lanyard, if only the wrist-strap type rather than the neck length one, so that it is not dropped if the referee is nudged.

The whistle's sound is the source of it's biggest problem, it's just a measly blow of wind incapable of grabbing anyone's attention let alone refereeing kid's football matches, which is what I wanted to use it for. So in conclusion I wouldn't recommend this whistle if you are planning to use it for any practical uses, or impractical for that matter.

For my son who is now a qualified referee! Apparently they need at least 2 whistles in case they are on a field with more than one match so that the players know which will to play too!
