Chlorate whistle is what comes to mind. I haven't played with it but I know many have and they will usually mix it with perchlorate to desensitized the mix.

It could be chlorate and KHP. I use the KHP and perc on shorter spindles and WOW they are powerful, I could only imagine them with chlorate.

Aside from maybe perch/benzoate with no catalyst I don't know if I'd consider whistle the best for newbies. I know I'm being a little hypocritical as it was my favorite from the get go but I stand by it. Whistle is strong stuff and can be quite sensative.

To illustrate my point the whistle in this video is unconfined. Also note it's effect on the blast shield.

Here's a test I did on my first batch of whistle from 3 summers ago. It was placed in a condiment cup from McDonalds and couldn't have been more than 2 grams.

I know a fella who made a tooling mistake pressing WM, cost him 3 fingers. Think there was a guy on here had the same thing happen w/ hybrid motors a few years back too.
It requires dilligent attention to safety and detail, is all I'm sayin.
