This whistle is probably one of THE loudest whistles on the market, which is great, but the thing that really makes this whistle great is the fact that it's pealess. A pealess whistle means that it doesn't have the little ball on the inside that wiggles around to help the whistle make sound. The pea may seem great and all, but the "pea" inside the whistle will stick to the sides if water gets in it which will render the whistle useless. Therefore, the pealess whistle is the superior choice. The Fox 40 CMG Whistle also has a little rubber mouth guard around the opening. This mouth guard makes it much easier on your teeth and on the whistle if you plan on using it for prolonged periods of time (like at a sporting event or when training a dog). The metal ring that secures the whistle to a lanyard is a double loop, which is much stronger than just a single loop, so you don't have to worry about losing your whistle. If you're lost, don't even bother shouting for help. Blow on the whistle instead, you'll save energy.

Pros:
Lightweight
Small
Very loud (can be controlled)
Has a mouth guard to protect your teeth and the whistle
Strong lanyard ring
Great for calling your dog or calling for help
Works when wet

Cons:
None

I'm no whistle expert (thus only 4 stars, as I had to leave room for that 5-star whistle that I'm unaware of), but this seems like an excellent whistle to me. I've had whistles in my lifetime, and I never knew where they disappeared to, and am not sure I really care. This one, I'll hang on to, and lament (well, maybe not that seriously) it's loss, if that ever happens. Costs a bit more than some of the other whistles, but I am very pleased with my purchase. About average size for a standard whistle. Seems too big to swallow & get caught in your throat like happens on the cartoons, which is a plus. Light. Durable. Attention-getting loudness. No moving parts. Won't rust, rattle, or be easily crushed. Comfortable and easy to use. You get to pick your color. Looks nice if you pick the right color for yourself. What else do you need from a whistle? I haven't tried to blow it under water, or in outer space (theoretically, I suppose, there should be no sound in a vacuum), so I can't give you any tests. I'm on the lazy side as a reviewer as far as that goes, but the other reviews cover that nicely. I have no complaints, nor disappointments. I can imagine this whistle could serve various purposes well -- for safety/protection, directing, survival kits, lifeguards, sports, parades, training, to just clowning around. Enjoy.

This whistle is a very bad fake (a sad trend among 3rd party sellers on Amazon). I know it sounds strange to criticize a whistle as being fake, but as a referee this specific whistle is required by my sport and this is not the real thing. The real model has a plastic bezel around the mouthguard, the mouthguard is glued to the whistle, and it comes with a grey breakaway lanyard. The one I received was the basic $1 model (might even be a fake of that) with some bulky fake mouthguard slapped on it (so it slides around), a mis-matched cheapo lanyard (half the clip is silver and the other half is brass colored), all in a plastic bag rather than the Fox40 packaging... and they sold it for the price of the more expensive model.

Great classic whistle. I referee in a large complex and these whistles have a unique sound over a pea whistle, but it does take a little practice to blow if you're not used to one. You will need to use a woodwind (saxophone/clarinet) type blowing motion with an active tongue to get nice, sharp tones. Definitely distinguishable from other whistles around the field. Slightly different sound than my standard black Fox 40.

PROS:
- Very loud
- Rubberized teeth grip is a nice addition over the standard Fox 40
- Distinct Sound
- Sound Carries

CONS:
- requires different blowing action than pea whistle
- cannot "Talk/express yourself" through different tones like you can with a pea whistle

I tend to be a whistle "biter" when I referee, so this soft mouth grip keeps me from cracking my teeth! Really, I was getting sore teeth with other whistles. I did have a little trouble with "flash" (extra plastic around the molding seams) that I had to trim away so my tongue wasn't rubbed, but other than that, I love this whistle.

Got this for my daughter who is coaching and she said "WOW! A Fox 40!! That's the gold standard for whistles!" I thought she was joking, because I had never heard of them before, but she was dead serious! She loves it!

Pay the extra money and buy the Mini Fox 40. It comes with the mouth grip AND lanyard. Also, I don't know why they call this a "Mini". This seems to be a regular standard size whistle. Regardless, you won't be disappointed with the performance of this whistle. You don't have to blow "rediculously" hard. This really works good. I'm very pleased with the quality and performance. :)

As a teacher, this whistle will grab the attention of kids with the shortest attention spans! I use this whistle at about half force when calling the end of recess and it could be heard across the yard easily. In fact, this whistle has made my teaching easier because when i so much as bring the whistle up to my lips, the kids hush because the whistle is irritating to them. Not to be mean, but this has saved so much "please be quiet" time and has allowed me to finish my lessons with ease.

I also plan to referee volleyball this summer with this whistle and it should work like a charm!

The whole reason i decided to write this review though is because I used it today in an emergency. I pulled over after seeing a motorcyclist lying on the ground and the whistle grabbed attention of emergency personnel more easily as they approached. Mind you, this is in San Francisco next to a busy highway!

My last note is that the mouth guard allows you to keep the whistle in your mouth without your teeth hurting and that is a BIG plus for me. This thing is priceless!
