    G-Shock with soft resin strap?

    Hello.

    I'd like to add a third G-Shock to my collection.
    My current two G-Shocks are the GW-5000 and GW-A1100-1A3ER.
    My main requirement for my new G-Shock is a soft resin strap.
    The strap of the GW-5000 is my benchmark because it's so soft and nearly feels like rubber.
    The strap of the GW-A1100 is a bit of a disappointment and no comparison to the GW-5000.

    G-Shock which I had in the past.
    GW-3000B-1AER (very stiff, plastic-like strap)
    GW-4000-1A3ER (very soft, no comparison to the GW-3000B strap but not as soft as the one from the GW-5000)

    What G-Shock with soft resin strap would be your recommendation?

    Thank you.

    Rangeman Black standard, not negative, or Olive, the band is rubberized

    I find the strap on my GW-9110 Gulfman to be softer -- or at least more flexible -- than the straps on my other G-Shocks. I think it's the same strap that's used on the GW-9200 Riseman. I don't have a GW-5000 to compare with, so maybe some others can comment on this.

    The only other G with soft strap that I have seen is the GWN-1000 gulfmaster. I don't think it is as nice as the ones on GW-5000, but it has the softest strap other than the GW-5000

    Not a G Shock but the F-91W does have very soft rubber.

    Be aware that some don't like it because of its (very small) size but it remains one of Casio's iconic model nevertheless.
