Delta2 - the Delrin Turbo precision non-metallic whistle
This whistle is precision crafted from Delrin, an extremely tactile, hard-wearing non-metallic material with a silky texture. Being a very dense material it is capable of being precision machined in just the same way as our metal whistles, taking a very sharp edge to produce crisp, sharp whistle sounds. The Delta2 takes the two-hole Turbo design that has been so successful in the solid brass Logan Turbo and stainless steel Logan 304 Turbo whistles. This design changes the 'timbre' of the whistle sounds helping them cut through competing noise such as wind or echoes, crowd or traffic noise. So you'll find this whistle will produce consistent sounds - soft for close work or crisp and sharp for use over extreme distance. It is also comfortable to use when in icy or very hot weather – or if you simply prefer not to use a metal whistle.

These are top of the line whistles. It takes some practice but they have great sound and range.
I'm completely new to proper whistles, so my experience could be useful to someone else in my position. Over the last 40 years I've trained my family dogs (Golden retrievers) to a high standard in obedience. My current pup is a small cockerpoo (OK, don't all laugh at once) from a working cocker spaniel with a good field trial pedigree.
Once he had in place all his voice commands, hand signals, mouth whistle and ordinary dog whistle commands, and was five months old, I decided that (as his natural radius is quite large) I'd try a proper whistle. I bought a cheap metal one, always with the intention of treating myself to a Logan whistle if I could get anything out of the cheap one. I'd read of people trying unsuccessfully for years!
After a day or two I was getting only one sound, coarse and sharp, and with little volume control. The pup would recall, but with a pained expression as if to say, "I've come back to ask you to stop - please!"
I ordered my Logan.
I chose the Delta2 Delrin whistle for a mellow tone and comfort in the cold.
I expected to find it easier, and I wasn't disappointed. Within an hour I was getting a variety of tones and it wasn't too long before they were getting more controllable.
The sound is like a Daimler compared to a clapped-out mini. (Not that I've ever driven a Daimler, whereas a clapped-out mini is a rite of passage.) It's rich and varied and carries very much better over a distance.
I have a long way to go before I can work up to a proper set of commands, (I have the Logan guide too) and the real problem is getting any practice, because my dog is pretty much always with me.
The Delta is flat - the top and bottom are parallel, not angled - which means that the joint is thicker. I find this very comfortable on the tongue, and Delrin is comfortable on the teeth.
I don't need as much from the whistle as you professionals do, but with potentially many years ahead, it’s a worthwhile luxury for me and my pup.
I received my Logan Delta2 Delrin Turbo whistle today and have only tried it briefly so far, but I can already tell that it has exceeded my expectations and well worth the wait and cost. It is so easy to use. I had a hand made stainless two hole whistle for years and lost it! I've tried a few whistles here in New Zealand but none have been very successful. So a big thanks and I now know where to go if I need more whistles in the future. I will recommend them to my friends also.
This whistle is awesome! Much louder than I expected but super easy to use and my pup is very responsive to it :)
