    Question Mudman - is mud really a problem for a non-mudman G-Shocks?

    Hi everyone,

    I'm kind of really curious if mud is such a big problem with non-mudman G-Shocks that Casio seen fit to advertise 'Mud Resistance' as a separate feature.

    So, has anyone witnessed a purportedly superior mud resistance of a mudman compared to any other Gs?

    My take is that its just a marketing gimmick as they are already waterproof.

    No. It is not. Casio old school model such the famous DW-5600E/DW-6600/DW-6900 G-Shock is the most sought model by military personnel for their military training. All these model survive on hard knocks, crawling in the mud, diving, desert etc, even thought the button is not covered by resin.

    The Casio Mudman is just a Casio Marketing to emphasize the design of Mud Covered Resin based model which become foundation model the current King G-Shock, GX/GWX-56 which all button is full covered by soft resin.

    As the very first Mudman is DW-5500, followed by DW-8400 (both has been discontinued long time ago), but you may find it similar button design in the still available model DW-9052. (Plastic square button).

    Of course the Mudman G-9000/G-9010 is hard to push due hard resin, but it's doesn't bother me all. Maybe you can consider a GuflMan+Mudman solutions model, the G-7900, which is best feature of both worlds...

    Note: You may wait until the new Mudman G/GW-9300 which will release soon on June 30, 2011...Maybe button easier to press?

    cheers,

    I feel like it could potentially be a problem if you get in the mud alot. I mean if you got mud inside of the bezel of a regular G wouldn't it be a pain in the rear to clean out?

    Mud under the bezel isn't a problem. All you have to do is take the bezel off and clean it. The biggest concern is getting any sort of dirt or moisture inside the case. All G's have small rubber gaskets on each side of all the buttons to prevent this from happening, so no, mud is not a problem.

    Maybe in terms of cleaning afterwards. The design could prevent or reduce mud from going inside and under the bezel. Plus the knuckles underneath help in stabilizing the watch on the wrist. The module case itself, regardless of model, should be safe from anything if its properly sealed.
