    Mudman drop test

    Ever since I read those articles questioning the shock resistance of the Mudman, I've been doubting it. It's a nice watch, but is it worthy? I hate it when things like that bug me...so much better to live life in ignorance sometimes!

    So anyway, I decided to settle this once and for all. I'll chuck it out of my bedroom window (must be about 6 metres high or so) onto my paved garden, and if it survives, it's awesome, and if it doesn't, then it's not worthy of the name!

    And gues what? It survived! Not even a scratch!

    They are built to take it. I believe the G-2300 is the King of the drop test, having been dropped from 25 stories up .

    I can't remember the exact height for terminal velocity but at least you know your G will survive, even if you don't .

    I wouldnt worry about the G-9000 because I have only heard of very few failing.Besides wearing one on your arm is totally different than hitting Your G-9000 up against the wall with a hockey stick.I have never slamed my arm into a wall.My G-9000 has been thru alot of punishment,,And is still going strong.

    What about the GW9010 Atomic Solar G-Shock? Will it perform the same, better or worse than the G9000 in a drop test? Does anybody know?
