    Blackest Frog?

    What is the "blackest" Frogman model WITHOUT a negative display like the new military ones, or closest to the look of this 6900 -




    No gold or silver screw heads, just a black Frog w/ colored lettering and a positive display / EL?


    Thanks! :)


    PS - Factory Frogs here, no "stealth jobs" please :)

    I suppose that would be the Real Black Froggie.

    Thanks Mitch,

    Any thing closer? Again, no gold or silver screw heads, just a black Frog w/ colored lettering and a positive display / EL? As close to the 6900 I provided?

    My big thing with the "Real Black" one, while I COULD paint in the letters, is the display :(

    Of course I believe the rest of them have a silver ring where it says "titanium" do they not?

    A "real black" might have to be as close as there is then? :(


    What color does the "real black" EL light in ?


    Thanks -
    Eric

    What's the "master blue" look like?

    Is that the one w/ the sliver screw heads and "Frogman" in blue lettering?

    If the display is positive in that one (a BIG deal to me as I HATE the negative displays :( ) I guess I could just paint in over the blue lettering?


    Thanks -

    This is the master blue.





    It has a positive display, the hexagonal screws are dark but not fully black. It has black buttons unlike the 'Real Black'.

    The 'real black' gives a blue light to the numerals when you use the EL.

    If you are keen on a 'Real Black' look to a 6900 but with a positive display you should consider a 20th anniversery 6900. It has a similar look to the 'real black' froggie but at much lest cost.

    Re: Blackest Frog?

    Thanks on the 6900, but I am looking at Frogs now. :)

    So far after doing a little homework I have found the following -

    1. GW-200RB-1JF Black Spots

    2. GW-200BC-1JF Black Helios

    3. GW-225C-1JF Master Blue


    - in that order SEEM to be what I am looking after (?).

    Again someone please correct me if am wrong, and also please point my in the direction I need to go to have my head checked for even looking at this and planting the seen in my mind that I "NEED" one. :)

    Thanks -
    Eric
