I use a smitty (clip on). However, I carry a noose on my backup whistle. Why? Once I had the loop on the shirt fail leaving no place to clip the smitty. Spitting the whistle out and having it bounce across the floor was only funny the first time or two. Luckily it was a summer league game.

I had the same experience as Camron only it was during a school varsity game. The whistle loop on my shirt snapped in half. Luckily, one of the JV refs had a lanyard and went to the locker room to get it for me. I still use a smitty, but I always carry a lanyard in my pocket just in case.

Cool

Ever since I broke a loop during a game, I carry a spare loop and large sewing machine in my pocket.

At least, that's what I tell the cheerleaders.


Damn - where's those meds?

But Mark, the sewing machine is supposed to go in the front pocket. :-)

I thought they were saying that your decisions were "booted" calls!

By the way, what exactly is a Smitty noose lanyard? I have a couple noose lanyards, and I have a couple Smitty's (what you guys are calling the clip-on type, I guess). But I didn't know there was a Smitty noose lanyard

I don't think there is such a thing....at least not that I've heard of.

I've seen some people take a standard long lanyard and feed it through the smitty loop then over their head. It appears that the lanyard stays in place much like a smitty or a noose.

I think Smitty has the patent/trademark on the noose lanyard.

Doesn't mean there aren't copycats, FWIW.


I use the "old" clip-on Smittys. The thought of wearing something referred to as a noose scares me!

Well, I guess there is such a thing. However, that is what I've previous heard called just a "noose" lanyard. I hadn't heard it with "smitty" attached.

Learn something everyday.

Here's a photo of the Smitty Noose lanyard from their website. As you can see, it does exist.

BTW - notice how it enhances your "court presence".
