Go on isds.org.uk and you should find most of the whistles made. Or google colliwobbles, they are a pound cheaper it seems. I have a A1 aluminium £18, Astro blaster in brass £25, and a titanium T3 £52. None of them work, I whistle and the damned dog still does what ever he wants to do.:(:mad::cry::cry:. Oh and a kangaroo leather thingy round my neck £11. All the gear no idea (y)(n):whistle:;)

Dick fortune plastic (isds) good whistle/ acme plastic no good/ all metal ones give you mouth ulcers! That is benefit of 30 plus years experience of daily use.
I agree about the Fortune whistles and acme plastic whistles, I found though if you drill the centre hole out to 4mm its just the same as an old fortune one, I dont think they make fortune ones anymore do they? I've not found one for years!
