    Sorry if the thread has been created before, but I have a couple of questions regarding handwraps.
    Okay so what do you think is the best type of wraps to use? elastic mexican styles or full cotton ones? What length?
    What is the best wraps for training and for real matches?
    I´ve also seen a couple of guys in my gym starting wrap loop on their middle finger first and not thumb, why?
    Is it always necessary to wrap inbetween all of your fingers, because some of my wraps aren´t that long and I run out of them if I do that with those.
    Which is better; Wrap more around knuckles or wrist?

    Elastic. 180in or longer.
    For real matches you get your hands wrapped with gauze and approved by the promoter.
    I've not seen middle finger but you can bunch up wrap over your knuckles to start the wrap.
    You are using wraps that are too short.
    It's preference. Although I wrap my wrists, I don't feel that the wrap is what gives wrist stability. That is achieved from training and a bit from my glove.

    Mexican for me, all the way.

    I start on the thumb. Most do.

    Wrap between all your fingers.

    I like Ringside's 200" pro mexican wraps.

    The black color, which provides 17% stretch.

    The red and blue colors only provide 6% stretch; which I really do not like and is why I rated them low before learning that there are different stretch levels between the colors.

    The black is much better.

    Got a 10-pack for $37 (before shipping) when they had a 50% off one item discount.
