I use the Fox 40 breakaway lanyard. I found it to be too long so I removed the metal clip and tied a knot in the lanyard just above the metal piece where the whistle attaches.

Highly Recommend

The Ritchie Powers model lanyard is the absolute best. I highly recommend it, although in a pinch the Joe Gushue is pretty good.

I also use the "noose". I had the standard smitty for the front of my shirt for years. However, I ran into issues with the hook coming off of my shirt. The noose is more comfortable and also looks more unique.

I have used Smitty's from the beginning but I carry a noose in my pocket on the court (come on Mark Padgett there has to be a comment here somewhere) as a spare in case the loop on my shirt breaks somehow.

Be careful what you ask for. It might actually be a real noose!
