    Is MUDMAN tougher than FROGMAN?

    What I want to know is if MUDMAN can take more beating than the FROGMAN?

    I believe FROGMAN'S claim to fame is diving and water resistance and MUDMAN's claim to fame is surviving tough environment and getting pounded ...

    In the video below, would FROGMAN survive the HAMMER test and the PISTON test that the MUDMAN was subjected to?

    YouTube - G-Shock Tough Test

    So by tough, I mean the ability to take a beating, not how deep under water you can go ..

    thanks,

    They both would easily survive that test. The Frogman's bezel protects it as well as the Mudman's, if not better.

    Plus, all Frogmen have a titanium case - something that no Mudman has.

    I would think they are both equal. They are both g-shocks and are tested to the same standards. The reason the frogman is more expensive is because of it's superior water resistance. That says nothing about toughness. If mud resistance is a factor, then the mudman is definitely toughers, but as far as shocks and drops, I would say they are about the same.

    Everything else being equal, I'd say they are probably about the same.

    I will say, though, that Muddies are notoriously tough!

    While both are G the Mudman isn't ISO certified. This means a sample of Mudmans have to meet the claimed standards while every single Frogman is tested.

    If you search in the review archives and find the torture test of the old DW 9052, you will see how tough Gs are! Both Froggie and Mudman are just as tough IMO!

    The Frogmen are tested to ISO 6425, which deals with dive standards only. So the Frogmen have an edge only underwater. Above water, both are testesd to similar standards so both are equally tough. You can now make your own conclusions!
