So I have the new GWR-B1000 carbon fiber Gravitymaster.
And yes, like every other G-Shock I've owned, the tail side of the strap is too long. (My wrists are anywhere from 5 7/8" to 6" on a good day, and round.)
It fits fine on top. But the tail is too long.
So, yes like every other G-Shock I've owned, I want to trim just the nub off the tail end so it doesn't pop out and catch on things.
I've read a few posts about how it's a waste and it will ruin the resale value. Well, I have no intention of selling, and I hate it getting stuck on things. Yes, I've added a second keeper. And no it doesn't stop it from getting snagged; plus, the nub is too thick to stick through the keeper without much effort.
The question now is: If I trim the nub of the tail using the razor blade and emory board method, will the inner CF insert start to delaminate from the resin cladding, or is the resin cladding an integral part of the insert?
Has anyone tried this and had the top and bottom resin start to separate or the CF layer fray? Were those a Torayca band?
