    Question What is the better series in Casio's line up

    Sorry if this as been asked before but I'm think of getting a new Casio sometime down the road. I recently bought a pathfinder I think it's a pathfinder because it looks like it but on their website it says sport gear collection? Anyway here's a poll question and I'm sorry if I forgot to include any other serise and if you know any other's that I forgot to menchen please feel free to comment.

    None. They are all not very good.

    Stick to Mudman, 5600 series & The Silencer.

    Frogman = too large
    Riseman = cheap looking with dodgy buttons
    Gulfman = cannot display day/date/month concurrently
    Pathfinder = too large

    I guess it depends on what you mean by better. They all fill a gap, and do it quite well, in spite of the opinions of some others . The pathfinder is not a G-Shock, but it is plenty tough for most people. The others all have their differences, and will serve you well, depending on your need/want.

    +1.

    What do you see yourself doing with a G-Shock in the future? Hiking up a trail? Conquering a mountain? Exploring coral reefs?

    A G-Shock is generally well-rounded for all of these, although there are some (Master of G) that are a bit more specialized for certain enviroments, mainly for marketing purposes. This however doesn't mean that they can't be used in other scenarios (see the thread about the Mudman being used as a diving watch).

    Now, unless you're an outdoorsman of some sort, better to avoid the Pathfinder/Protrek line; they're pricier than the average G, and don't nearly have as much shock protection.

    G-9100 Gulfman
    G-9000MC-8D Mudman
    GW5600J
    GA-100A-9A

    Sucks to be without a G.

    Re: What is the better series in Casio's line up

    My vote was for Frogman, because they are the only ones listed that are both Gs and too large.

    Frogman for me , i love the design of this watch also functionality wise it is reach (At least for Divers). Even because limited editions frogmans are more famous.

    Wink Re: What is the better series in Casio's line up

    I would say Frogman in this small line up. I expected actual series though after reading the title. I thought I was going to enter MR-G followed by the G-Lide series (that's my thing), but that's not present. In your list is only one (special) G-Shock series and a Casio sub-brand.

    Cheers,

    Sjors

    There are only 10 kind of people. Those who understand binary and those who don't.
