    First time(ish) G-Shock purchase.

    Hello!
    I'm a G-Shock first time-er...kind of. My first G-Shock purchase was the G2900F-1V. It was alright, but I wasn't getting that WOW factor that G-Shocks are known for. I ordered the G9000-1V and it will be here in a day or two hopefully. I was wondering what the negative aspects of the Mudman were, as well as the positive?
    Also, I was wondering what would be another good G-Shock to get would be?

    Thank you!
    Corey :thanks

    Welcome!

    The stiff buttons are the only real downside, but most owners don't mind them a bit.
    I used to list my watches here until I realised it ruined people's Google searches...

    Welcome!!

    The Muddy feels smaller than it looks and lighter, a great addition to the watch box!!

    Welcome to the club! The G-9000 Muddy's are a great G, I have had quite a few in the past and flipped them but here lately I have been wanting a G-9000MS, the all black one, waiting for a bargain to pop up.
    Experience is what you end up with when you didn't get what you wanted.

    Thanks!

    I also just read that there are small nubs on the back case, hopefully these won't cause too much irritation.
    I just took a look on Amazon and found a red GLX5600 for a really nice price...I'm thinking about grabbing one while I can.

    Corey, welcome to the forum The Mudman is a good model for your 1st G. It was mine also. If you are looking at other G's take look at the GA-100-1A4
    Mechagodzilla find me a G-Shock in Tokyo!!

    I just got my G9000MX-8 a few days ago and absolutely love it. The buttons are a bit hard to press, but it's no big deal what so ever. The Mudman is actually a bit smaller than I was thinking it would be. I have small wrists (7") and it fits just fine.

    Enjoy your new watch.

    I got a GLX5600 recently and really like it. Nice functions--even if I really don't care about the tides--and very nice, clear display. I'm a big fan of the squares.

    If you like the GLX5600, you should consider the GX-56.

    Welcome to the forum and to the G Shock world !

    As to the answer to your question, there are many G's that would be a good "next one" to buy. Check them out and then, make your decision.
