what handwraps do you use?
I need to get a few pairs of handwraps, what do you use? how much are they? where can I get them from?
ive got some 5m herringbones and 1.8m herringbones, the 1.8s are just quicker to put on, the 5s are the best for protection. herringbone ones dont stretch like normal ones
I was thinking maybe some basic 180inch mexican style ones? What you reckon?
they're all basically the same apart from the length. the longer they are, the more protection you get
Far from being basically tha same apart from the length.

Some like stretchy, some like ones that don't stretch, lots of stecth, a little bit stretchy, no steretch, soft, different materials, different widths.
I find Evolution wraps good, the best wraps I like are Windy. But they are like rocking horse shit!
Mine are Twins 5m. Give great protection and support for wrists and knuckles.
They are thick material, so they hold the sweat really well so need washing every few uses otherwise they will stink out any room they are left in.

Totally agree, I got Windy wraps and they are awesome, but are as you say like rocking horse shit to get hold of!

Its not the length of the hand wraps that gives the strength, its the way that you put them on. There is a particular way of wrapping every individual hand to give support where it is needed, movement where it is needed, warmth to the soft tissues where it is needed.
Wrapping is also required to be generally different depending on the gloves you are using.
My advice would be first to learn exactly how hands should be wrapped...you'll be saving your hands pain and suffering.
Out of interest, I don't wrap my hands in training. I've trained for proper fist position, supporting the bone structure and soft tissue all the way to the floor as a prop, and utilise heavier gloves for protection.
Hope this gives a different perspective...
Nice reply from Smiler. Totally agree with that. I never wrap my own hands. I always get my coach to do it.
I know that this is a slightly different subject, but here is the best way to wash wraps.
Roll wrap up and secure with the Velcro. Place in washing machine and wash with other gym kit.
When wash is finished. Unroll handwrap over a door to dry.
This gives you a totally flat wrap. Easy to rewrap ready for wearing again.
This will prevent tangles with the rest of your kit and trying to flatten out you wraps when washed.
Hope this helps guys
cheers mate and thanks Smiler!
