I've been using the ACME Thundered for quite a few years and find they hold up better game after game than the Fox40. I especially love the matte black ones. The tone is good, the grips are fine, but it's that matte black finish that I just love! As always when ordering service was top notch!
I've used cheap plastic ones and the "Professional" ones, but this one by ACME is my favorite... Always loud, holds up to the outside-elements and cold conditions. Nice, LOUD, and comfortable... A+!
This is the best sounding whistle I have heard and it looks great too. The black color makes it look sleek and professional. The team at Hockey Ref Shop has the best customer service. I had this whistle 2 days after ordering it, along with a nice hand written note from Eric wishing me luck this season. They really do go the extra mile when it comes to customer service and I will definitely be ordering from them for all my ref equipment needs from now on.
