I was noticing on the new mudmans there's spacing revealing the metal underneath like on a frogman. It just seems like this would allow for the introduction of mud and dust since this isn't a truly sealed system. I got to wondering about this when I took the bezel off my frogman and was amazed at the junk in there. Does anybody know any different. Oh and by the way I just ordered the creamy white mudman yesterday. The prices are finally right and I'm in love with the orange EL. They need to do more with colored EL's. For some reason My wife's Baby G's come with better EL colors than blue or green so I know it's possible.
