Whistle comparison?

    Has anyone compared the ITW whistle sold by countycomm with (say) a Fox-40 (also, oddly enough, sold by countycomm)?

    My search-fu is weak today, I couldn't find any comparisons.

    The price is nice, the size seems a bit large on the ITW. The Fox-40s are a known quantity, however.

    Thanks!

    ITW makes a cool whistle, I've got one of every model they sell, but output is weak compared to any fox40!

    No problem! Any time! by the way, you can get 2 fox40 micros @ dicks sprting goods for around $9 if you've got one near you! :highfive:

    If you want loud, get a Fox 40.

    If you want LOUD, get a Fox 40 Sonik (125dB).

    Let us suppose that I either must get my EDC Key Blob items at local BM stores or send MO for same.

    I have access to Gander Mtn, Academy, REI, WM, Target etc.

    I also have fairly limited realty on my key blob.

    Recommendations?

    I would like to add a whistle for sure, as I can't get loud at all.

    Gander Mtn. in the boat section.
    Orange acme whistles are as small/loud as I have found local.
    Come in a two pack.

    I have a Fox40 that I bought for work. This thing is loud and ear piercing. Everybody can hear in the block and noone can deny hearing it. :evilgrin:

    I bought 2 Fox 40's at Wal Mart last week for $3 each. Found them in the basketball section.

    That's cool!

    THANKS again!

    It MUST be said I'm also gonna try and find a decent tubular steel or aluminum (or Ti) whistle as I think it would hang from my Key Blob better.
