    Mudman Help

    Hey folks,

    I've been lurking here awhile and decided to sign up so hi to all. I do have a question however that I hope someone can help me with. I recently bought a mudman and absolutely love it!! The functions and fit are great and feels comfortable except for one thing. Those nubs on the back drive me crazy!! Does anybody else have this problem? Any suggestions or solutions. I've tried to tough it out but it rubs my wrist raw. I've considered filing or sanding them down bit I'm a little bit of a purist and did want to do that type of modification. Also considered taking off the guard but not sure if the case molding would stick out and cause a different fit issue. Any help would be great and looking forward to participating here in the future.

    I don't think that removing the case back cover will work. I believe that the case back screws are shouldered, so you'll just end up with the screws sticking out.

    If it really bothers you, and loosening the strap one notch is too loose for your liking, then sanding down the nubs is the only way out that I can think of.

    I'm assuming you're talking about the little checkered parts. If they're are rubbing you raw, I'm sure you're rubbing them a bit each time. So eventually you'll rub them smooth anyway, so take a sandpaper or an exacto to them.

    I too think removing the guard will result in the screws sticking out.

    Good luck.

    Sounds like you're just wearing it way too tight. On my wrist, the Mudman can be worn fairly loose and it won't slide around.
    Wear what you like.

    I find the Mudman one of the most comfortable G's to wear. Maybe my skin is just old and leathery.

    I usually wear my watches pretty tight, but I've never even noticed the nubs on the back The strap and watch are just so comfortable, I never even notice them.

    Hmm. Maybe making a Bund-style pad to put under the watch head?

    I prefer to wear my watches snug and I too have found the 4 traction pads on bottom can really dig in, especially if the watch gets pressed into my wrist. Ouch! I have taken to wearing it a notch looser than normal, which works alright.
