SportDOG Mega Roy Gonia Clear Special Whistle with Pea

Don't like it. Whistle isn't very loud, very disappointed
  • Nice looking whistle
  • Not very loud.

Good retriever whistle; very good price
January 23, 2021
I've used Gonia Clear Competition Mega whistles for at least 30 years. As a professional retriever trainer, I always give one to clients, so they have a good whistle to use. I also teach them how to blow a whistle properly; I've found that many clients need to learn how. I always buy my whistles (as well as most retriever training supplies) from Gun Dog Supply. Far and away they have the best price and delivery of anyone.
  • Sound carries very well. Price is excellent
  • If used a lot during a training session, the pea sometimes sticks. This never used to happen. I've been told that the quality of the pea has declined since Roy first designed them years ago.

I have used these clear Mega whistles for long range and running water for 30 years. In fact I still use one I purchased in the early 1990s. They work great for both competition and hunting.

This was the whislte a professional trainer suggested we use. The dogs seem to respond better because the sound is directed and more focused towards the dog. It also cuts down on the db/noise insult to the handlers ears when using the whistle.

Excellent whistle for both field and competition. Very clear and sound travels far. Won't freeze up in cold waterfowl conditions.

I am very impressed with this whistle, especially the fact that the sound travels out and not up into my ears.

I have been using this whistle for over 10 yrs, and now that they are made in China the peas are bad. Not to spec. One of the 3 I ordered, the pea sticks, and I like a pea in my whistle most of the time. I also use the answer, but really miss the quality they used to have!!!!!! I found this out after talking to Kevin Lee at SportDog after the last time I had a problem.

I've had a couple of these whistles. I like how the dog responds even at long distance, and the whistle doesn't kill my ears. It's only 4 stars because I've had some inconsistency in tone amongst the whistles I've owned, and it throws the dog off at first. Makes it hard to carry 2 whistles into the field to combat freeze-up.

I first used the Roy Gonia clear competition whistle for years. When the mega whistle came out, I was reluctant to change, but once I did, I liked it. Then one day I could not find the mega whistle, so I used the small one and it hurt my ears. It's saving my hearing, as well as getting the sound out to the dogs.

Very easy to blow, light weight, and sound reaches out very far, so that your dog can easily hear. Highly recommend to dog owners.

Have to blow as hard as possible to make sounds. Way more air needed than any other I've ever had.

Why are these whistles so hit and miss?? They can't even make it through a training session without the pea sticking!

It's the only whistle I use for hunting and running hunt tests. Dogs respond well in high winds and driving rain. I have been using this whistle for about 8 years.

It's a whistle. Not sure the cone does anything to protect my ears, but the whistle isn't so piercing as to be damaging. Suspect the cone is more useful at focusing sound toward the dog.

Great customer service!!!! I like the Mega whistle, it performs well, sends plenty of sound out and away from hunters ears, it just seems a little to hard to blow, but I am pleased with the product, and again the company!!!

Works well. I would order 5 or 6 and see which one sounds the best and return the rest. Even though it's the same whistle they will sound different (some louder than others).

The bell on this whistle keeps the blast out of my ears and out towards my dogs. They can hear this whistle in noisy and chaotic conditions. Quality product.

Great sound and carry but entirely too much force needed. Requires far to much air.
