Hello.

I'd like to add a third G-Shock to my collection.
My current two G-Shocks are the GW-5000 and GW-A1100-1A3ER.
My main requirement for my new G-Shock is a soft resin strap.
The strap of the GW-5000 is my benchmark because it's so soft and nearly feels like rubber.
The strap of the GW-A1100 is a bit of a disappointment and no comparison to the GW-5000.

G-Shock which I had in the past.
GW-3000B-1AER (very stiff, plastic-like strap)
GW-4000-1A3ER (very soft, no comparison to the GW-3000B strap but not as soft as the one from the GW-5000)

What G-Shock with soft resin strap would be your recommendation?

Thank you.

I find the strap on my GW-9110 Gulfman to be softer -- or at least more flexible -- than the straps on my other G-Shocks. I think it's the same strap that's used on the GW-9200 Riseman. I don't have a GW-5000 to compare with, so maybe some others can comment on this.

Not a G Shock but the F-91W does have very soft rubber.

Be aware that some don't like it because of its (very small) size but it remains one of Casio's iconic model nevertheless.

The only other G with soft strap that I have seen is the GWN-1000 gulfmaster. I don't think it is as nice as the ones on GW-5000, but it has the softest strap other than the GW-5000
