To start, I love the Frogman, but $240 is way TOOOOO much money for me to spend.

I like the 25th anniversary ones the best, but they are too hard to find and also too expenseive.

I can get either the Gulfman or Mudman for $61-62.

I also like the atomic versions, but then you lose the day of the week display due to the 5 band circles.

I own a GW-300 right now which is OK I guess.

So what do you guys think?

Voted Mudman because of the 2 stop watches and more different available colors.

Of course, if tide display is important for you in NY you should go for a Gulfman.

I'm only looking at Gulfman for the look. The graph is irrelevant.

I voted Gulfman, because I think it looks nicer, and the buttons are big and easy to push, unlike the Mudman's rather stiff buttons. I'm not being a traitor to the Mudman which is one of my favourites, but if looks and ease of use are a priority, a Gulfman might be the best choice. On the other hand if it's going to be dragged through mud and/or the dual stopwatch is useful, the Mudman would be the better choice. It's not a bad choice to have to make though, as I don't think you can 'lose' whichever you choose. :-!

I voted Gulfman, I prefer the looks. However, I think I prefer the looks of the GW9100 (atomic) even more. Then, I have neither, so maybe I should have voted other....

choosing between the gulfman and mudman is like choosing between mcdonalds and burger king, KFC and Popeyes, Taco and burrito, bulgogi and steak, soup and salad, chicken fried rice and beef fried tice, chicken nugget and eggroll.

but of course, if u buy the Mud, u can join out exclusive Mudman tribe. i got the 3v which is the Ninja Turtle version or the Hulk version.

Do what I did I bought both with the added bonus of becoming an eligible member of the Mudman Tribe. :-d:-d:-d But seriously if the tide and moon phase thing isn't important to you then the Mudman has far better features.

Cheers :-!:-!:-! Besides if you don't by a Mudman you might get attacked by the Mansrow bunny.

How is the display readability? Does it look 'military green?' I'm ticked that I didn't grab it when I found it for $45! Thoughts on the atomic version?

Ah yes, the tribe!!!

its a reverse display and unfortunately the readability depends on the light environment. its more of a dark green. heres a pic















the black with red button is also a great color combination.:-!

Yeah, I have a black with red accents GW-300. Buttons are black though. $62.50 is my best price for a non-atomic. $94-96 for solar atomic.
