I like that 6900 MS a lot. The ONLY draw back is that the display is pretty dark. But in the sun its GREAT... LOVE the IP coated buttons and buckle!


It is certainly STEALTHY!!!

jeff, whats the difference between a plain resin band and a matte finish one? compared to p.u.'s the resin gets really brittle in time thats the drawback on g's, that's why i dig the vector its on an sturdy abc plastic...

Not much difference I reckon. I guess the resin can break... We call it "Resin Rot" on the G Forum. :) A few years back I experienced it with an OLD 6900. I was stealthing the bezel and it cracked apart in my fingers.

But it takes a number of years. And Casio sells fresh bezels and straps pretty cheap. No idea the history on that 6900 as it was second hand. But I have never had Resin rot with one of my Gs. (that I have owned from the beginning). I have one G that is about 12 years old. No signs of Resin Rot at all. Probably a lot has to do with the environment.
