    why cant you use Casio adapters, is the lug wider than 16mm?

    that sucks, i guess the material used to to make the adaptor can't survive the test of life's ingredients

    Ouch, and sorry to hear about that!

    You really might want to post this over in the (huge) https://forums.watchuseek.com/f17/sha...em-974579.html where more people (and future customers) are more likely to see it, especially with a quick Google search.

    Keoni, the person who designed the adapters, is also more likely to find out about the problem (and perhaps correct it) if you post it there!

    I don't know my analog G's that well, but if that's a GA-100 or -110, the lug IS 16mm and "normal" Casio adapters fit nicely. https://forums.watchuseek.com/f17/ga1...te-441874.html

    As 3D printing evolves, there are a lot of different materials that can be used -- I'm guessing that this particular "strong and flexible nylon plastic" is working too hard on "strong" and not hard enough on "flexible."
