Whistles

I am looking to buy some new whistles for summer leagues and next season. Does anyone know any good deals going on right now or simply a good place to order them from? Thanks!

Last time I ordered, Honig's gave discounts for ordering 3 or more whistles. You could check and see if they're still offering that.

I always order mine directly from Fox 40. I've gotten classics, minis, CMGs, and Mini CMGs some black, some white.

In FEEBLE, do you use metric Fox 40s? I guess they would be Fox 73.98583s or something like that.

The Loudest whistle on the market!

"Dolfin Pro" pealess whistle. The unique shape generates the sharp and quick sound, and also helps maximize the penetrating sound.
Made in Japan by Molten. Imported and distributed in North America by Fox-40. The Fox-40 logo is printed on the whistle
