    Rangeman for Newb

    I'm new to the forum...love all the watch talk and info about Casio!!

    So i am shopping online for a Rangeman and cannot understand the difference between models available. I would really like to pick one up with the negative display, however, I would like to be able to see the display at all times.

    Why does the Rangeman have such a wide price variation? I see the standard black version, the black/green with negative display. $370, 300, 245, 390 & 400 are all the prices i'm seeing. Whats the deal? Old models, new models, etc???? The Casio website shows list price at $300 for black or green.

    HELP!

    Japan sources variants have carbon strap so they're more expensive.
    (I have both US version and Japan version and I really don't think that japan carbon strap version is worth the premium)

    As for the US version it's supply / demand. Green with negative display is a bit cheaper than positive version since it's slightly harder to read
    especally in low light situations. But it's cool looking... Anyhow, it's less desirable so they tend to be cheaper...
    (Not a big deal for me ... I can read negative just fine... when the light is really low I just hit the light button but need for that is really rear...)

    Hope this helps. And velcome to the forum.
