    Loving the G-9000 Mudman

    After a few weeks of wearing the Mudman G-9000, I must say that I'm very impressed. The features of the 3031 module are just plain mind boggling. They stuffed the 3031 until there were features coming out of its ears. Some of the little features are quite cool, such as the timed disabling of the AutoEL after 6 hours. You get an adjustable EL time, button muting, fast switching between 12 and 24 hour time, and the flash alert function. These are the kinds of functions that you normally get on a G-Shock, but you usually only get one or two of them. It’s as if Casio was filling the Mudman with features, and accidentally dumped in the whole box of goodies!!!

    Add two feature packed stopwatches, and a very versatile countdown timer, and you’ve got a winner. The first stopwatch has a 5-second autostart feature, and both stopwatches will go as high as 1000 hours. That’s a lot of time. The countdown timer gives you auto-repeat and a progress beeper, and generously counts down from as high as 24 hours.

    Casio really could have stopped there, and called it the best G-Shock module ever, but decided to give us the full compliment of alarms and alarm functions, as well as an excellent world time function. The alarms will even do daily, date, monthly and 1-month alarms.

    As a final Master of G worthy feature, the dual illuminator function is most impressive. Having the LCD light up, as well as the face of the watch, is enough to make the new Mudman stand out from amongst the rest of the G-Shock collection.

    As for the looks of the G-9000, I really like it. Te asymmetrical design is quite unique. The size is definitely not small, but not uncomfortably large, like some older G-Shocks. I’d say that the new Mudman feels and looks about the same size as DW6600 or 6900. The display is much easier to read than the display on my TC Frogman. The caseback engraving is very unique, with an image of a mole driving a race car.

    The band is a bit of a mixed bag, but still well thought out. No, the Mudman will not accept a strap adapter to add a Zulu or Rhino strap. But the resin band of the G-9000 is no slouch. The band if soft enough and sized for both average and smaller wrists. I normally hate resin G-Shock bands, finding them either uncomfortable or too long, but the Mudman appears to have been designed with the average-sized person in mind, with a little leeway for slightly smaller and larger wrists. But you’re bumming if you have a tree trunk for a wrist. One notable feature of the new Mudman is that the straps do not use spring bars. The straps actually screw into the watch, for an excellent level of watch security.

    One more thing. Did I mention that the G-9000 is mud resistant?

    Sky -

    Look after G-Shock first, and if you have a beigey model, let me know all, pay pal, email addy, etc.

    My email.


    Off to bed here..
