For me, this is the first exciting G-Shock in years. I used to be into G-Shocks MASSIVELY but for the past three years or so, I've perhaps bought the odd second hand one here and there, but nothing new.
The Riseman was bought for me at release and I see it as the perfect G-Shock... Well, it's small enough for my girly wrist for starters!
So, as long as the size is not too dissimilar from the GW-9200, I'll be buying a Rangeman without a doubt.
My only other concern is the length of the Carbon Fibre strap, as on the S5600 a few years ago, it was much longer than a standard 5600 and just looked silly on me.
Do you have any thoughts putting you off a purchase or is it a definite yes/no/have to have it?
EDIT: According to Casio UK, the resin strap version will be released here at the end of October. It'll be available at Casio London stores and via Casio online for £280, with no mention of the Carbon Fibre variant.
