    Absolutely... I haven't met a Frog I don't like yet......

    They're all different, and some are simply better than others...ha..ha..ha...

    Cheers...

    I presume you mean the atomic one that just listed at $725. At that price, the answer is no.

    I voted yes but I'm still undecided. I don't own an atomic yet but if I was going to get one why not start with the FROGMAN!! I hear everyone yelling about the price but it seems OK to shell out $500+ USD for the Green Frog without batting an eye why worry about a few more bucks for atomic?? I'm sure once no one bites right off the price will drop unless there is limited supply.

    No that's the listed price. A couple of friends in Japan say the shops there are taking preorders for about 300 pounds (less than $500).

    I think I'll wait for some time. Usually the first model coming out is not the best looking one.


    The price info came from yodobashi today so I think it's quite reliable.

    That's more reasonable. It is a good module, particularly if you actually dive.

    I'm a bit biased here, tho, as it's more than price sensitivity for me. While I'm a huge G fan, I really have never gotten into the Frogs. As such, this is a very easy decision for me, even at $500.

    I'm pretty sure I'll get around to adding a Frogman to the collection one day, but it likely will not be the most expensive option.

    I really like it, and would love to have one, but that is just to steep of a price. You could pick up a new marathon T or JSAR on Bracelet for that price. I like to keep my G's under the 400 mark.
    Experience is what you end up with when you didn't get what you wanted.

    I voted no but if it goes for <$500 and comes out in some colors that are more appealing to me at some point I might go for it.
