    Thanks all. Much appreciated. I didn't realise there were so many variations! It looks like the Acme Thunderer 58.5 is the most popular for rugby?

    It's what I've been using for all my refereeing years and what I recommend tto all new referees that I deal with.

    Hate when a referee uses anything else...but that's probably just me! !

    I think the 60.5 is higher pitched and tends to be used by football (soccer) referees.

    Don't think anyone mentioned the 60.5!
