    Opinions needed

    I currently own a Gulfman 9100 and now and am considering another G Shock. I love the looks of the Rangeman but pretty sure it is a bit too large (a bit over 6.5" wrist). The Gulfman fits very well but could go a bit larger. It looks like the Mudman 9300 may be my next one. My question is regarding the strap length. I really don't like the strap tail meeting the head of the watch so is the overall length of the Mudman much longer than the Gulfman? It may be just the difference in the watch lengths but not sure and haven't been able to find a Mudman in local stores.
    Thanks,
    Bill

    9300 strap is the same length as the 9100, but has one tang on the buckle instead of 2 tangs. And the 9300 case is a bit thicker than the 9100.

    Can recommend the GW-2310 has a G with a shorter strap.

    GW-2310



    G-2310R



    GW-2310FB

    Consider the Rangeman, it wears well my small wrist.

    I have a 6.5" wrist and the G-9300. You won't have a problem with the strap being too long. For me it sits about half an inch away from where it says "Twin Sensor" on the top band. I don't have a Rangeman but I tried it on in the store. It fit fine but looked big (but then the G-9300 looks big too). You could probably get used to it. I think I should have got the Rangeman instead.

    I have 6.5" wrist, and I can wear either GW9400 or GW9300 with no problem. And btw, their long tail of the strap is the same length.

    But if you like lower profile watch, the 2310 is a good suggestion from previous post, also you can't beat GW5000 / GWM5610 for low profile fit

    Does G-Shock have adapters for zulu straps that would enable a user to customize the strap length?
