I am doing this poll to see if I am the only person on F17 who has never found the Mudman buttons difficult.
I think I must be the only person on WUS who doesn't have a problem with the buttons on the G9000 Mudmans, in fact I actually quite like the very positive action and pressure needed. I have a Tag Heuer Monaco and the buttons on that are stiff and much more unpleasant to use in comparison, every time I press one and the button eventually gives with a crunching sound I keep thinking I've broken it, It was like that from brand new and is fully serviced, nasty horrible buttons. I do, however, also like the easy to push buttons (GD100/Gulfman/MTG900/ as well but I have no problem adapting to a watch with stiffer buttons.
I have seen on WUS people who completely discount one of the best minimalist Master G-Shock models simply because of the buttons...insanity in my view.
