Looking at various low D whistles, I came across the low D 3d printed Qwistle? I assume that just the heads are printed. Is that correct? Has anyone had any experience with them, and how do they compare to other low Ds. Curious about traditional verses high tech?

Yes, only the head is 3D-printed. I have the "pro" and "standard" head. The "pro" was almost too loud for practicing at home. The Qwistle has a unique tone IMO. Very high backpressure. So you can blast into it. I like it but some don't. It's not the easiest low D to play but the sound is very rewarding. Look for recordings on Youtube or Facebook from Simon Doyle to hear how it sounds.

He plays the alloy version with the "pro" head.
Almost forgot -- he also made a proper review when he first got it:
