    Is the inner middle case of the mudmaster steel or plastic?

    What is the material of the inner middle case of the casio mudmaster? The case under the resin protective bezel... is it plastic or metal?

    I believe the Mudmaster case is made from hard resin, similar to most G-Shocks.

    shouldn't it have a steel middle case to add to the rigidity of the watch?
    the middle case must be steel covered by the resin bezel, i think so ! But i am not sure
    but it will be weird if it is made completely from resin!!!
    the inner chassis must be metal

    No. Its made from glassfiber reinforced plastic with some metal inserts in some places (around the buttons).

    The rigidity of the reinforced case is more then enough to withstand everything that is happening to the watch ON YOUR WRIST.

    If you want a full metal G you should check the Frogman or MRG line.
    Not that this will give you much of an advance in robustness.....

    Yes. Steel or titanium, depending on model.

    But it's not the kind of plastic that you see everywhere.
