    Adapter GW200 Frogman,,, WTB

    Hey guys, I need some adapters for my Frogman GW200, to install Nato strap, anyone know where I can get them. On Ebay I've seen, but for 16mm models, DW5600, DW6900, etc, but I think it don't fit ok on Frogman 18mm lug.

    Anyone know where I could find the right....

    Thanks.

    This has come up before -- broadarrow only sells the "basic" 16mm Casio adapters that everybody else sells, which were originally found on 5600-series "Glide" models and other G's with velcro straps. (They have a great business model, target a different market of non-WISes and non-WUS members, and make a tidy profit by doing so. I'm a little envious and wish I'd thought of it first! )


    As far as 18mm adapters go, Gomiki, check out this thread: https://forums.watchuseek.com/f17/sha...em-974579.html

    With 3D printing technology, and Shapeways' production facility, our own WUS member Keoni has started designing several different strap adapters for various G-Shock models. With input from this forum, he's "tweaked' his designs to accommodate strap widths other than the commonly-used 24mm strap, and if there's enough interest he can probably adjust his design to fit 18mm lugs for your Frogman and/or older 5600 models!

    someone has used the Casio strap adapters before and the trick was to trim the inside refill of a ballpoint pen to make it work. check here

    It would not be a bad solution to center 16mm adapters in the Frogman, take this into account as a possible solution, thanks friend
