What whistle do you use

Fox 40...you mean there are other whistles out there?

I use the short smitty lanyard and am thinking about the choker kind as backup.

In game - Fox 40 Classic with MPG on a Smitty.
In Pocket - same whistle with a regular lanyard with a noose slide.

I have a friend who is using the Dolphin this year. Very distinct sound in a loud gym.

I*m using an unamed one, it's got a little ball in it so the tone isn't as highly pitched as the fox 40, I prefer that (it still sounds as loud)

I use the Fox 40 classic. Unless I'm at one of those multi-court places doing rec ball, then I use the Fox Pearl, because the sound is different and makes it easier for the players to know that it's my whistle, not a whistle from a nearby court.

On fox 40

Do your ears ever ring after a game from the loud shrill blasts from that little miracle?

I have had that happen.. but I do rec ball and can do 2 games in a row.. and it is in a smaller gym so the sound probably bounces around..

I have thought of going to a quieter one.. but then I figured out I could just swallow it and let them play!

I bought it ($7.50!) and I like it. I started using it as a novelty and now I prefer it, but it isn't to much different from the Fox 40.
