    Mudman button difficulties: should i still buy one???

    hi guys!
    im really considering getting a mudman, but im slightly concerned about the infamous "buttons" which are really stiff, due to the mud resistance. are the buttons really that stiff, and also, should it put me off buying one?
    thanks,
    G-man.

    They are stiff, but you get used to them.
    The 3031 module is great.
    And some cool colors.

    The buttons on the Mudman series are notoriously stiff to depress, mine appear to be no exception. Several people on the G-Shock forum have said that by boiling the bezel for 20-30 minutes you can soften them up. Well I have some spare time and a digital camera handy so I’m going to see if this works.

    In spite of boiling my mudman (and it did improve the stiffness) I still find the buttons too stiff to really enjoy the watch. It is my least favorite G.

    Yes, you should buy one! the buttons loosen up after a while and no don't boil it, the effect is only temporary. mudmans are meant to be worn not kept in displays, so wear it often and it'll soon be as comfortable as any other G. TC.

    I was also concerned before I bought my first Mudman, when I got the watch in my hands and pressed the buttons, I was like that's it? The buttons are not a big deal, It gives the watch a nice tough solid feel. I have since purchased 3 more with another on it's way. The watch is great, Go for it!

    Same here. I've had 2 Mudmans (Mudmen?) now. One was tighter than the other one, but unless you have the hands of a 5 year old, it shouldn't be a problem.

    Would I prefer if they were easier to push? Yes.
    Does it make me enjoy the watch any less? No.

    Buy one, the buttons break in with use, like Fahad said they are meant to be worn.

    I have one on the way, and the way I see it, even if they're super stiff, I don't push the buttons all that often. And, it might be a benefit to avoid accidental button presses.
