hi im tryimg to decide between buying one of these 2 watches.

http://www.amazon.com/Casio-GW9010-1-G-Shock-Mudman-Atomic/dp/B001A65ZBC/ref=redir_mobile_desktop?ie=UTF8&dpID=51fDNUsa7+L&dpPl=1&keywords=atomic mudman&pi=SY200_QL40&qid=1451323910&ref=plSrch&ref_=mp_s_a_1_1&sr=8-1

http://www.amazon.com/Casio-G-Shock-Camouflage-Digital-GW-9300CM-1/dp/B00W9FJVEK/ref=redir_mobile_desktop?ie=UTF8&dpID=51IULOS1WHL&dpPl=1&keywords=atomic mudman&pi=AC_SX220_SY330_FMwebp_QL65&qid=1451323910&ref=plSrch&ref_=mp_s_a_1_4&sr=8-4

what I want to know is
is one of them substantially more mud resistant than the other?
how accurate is the compass on the one with the compass?
the one with the compass uses inorganic crystal. is that any less strong than mineral crystal?
how durable is the carbon fiber band compared to the resin band
also would you rathet have a strap that is double buckle resin or single buckle but carbon fiber. have you ever found the single buckle to acidentallly come undone?
can the bands on either of these watches be switched out for a stainless steel band?

I already have this watch
do you think the cheaper of the 2 that imblooking at isnt really any more durable than thos one due to how close the prices are?

I'd personally recommend the Rangeman over those models. Larger, but very comfortable on the wrist. The Rangeman has casio's latest sensors, more features and is just plain awesome. Also listed in the price point you posted with the 2 watches.

I have the model with the carbon fiber band. Yes, it is better, slightly more flexible/comfortable than the resin models, but not enough so to make it a necessity. It also adds to the price. I've never had a problem with a gshock with a resin strap.

Rangeman does not have the moon phase which was a big miss for me. I say go with the 9300 Mudman
