    I just started training Muay Thai. I completed all of the private lessons and I join the regular training with the team tomorrow. I was curious on what you all would recommend for hand wraps? I have the 108s and one set of 180s. Which would be best for my Muay Thai training?

    Thanks in advance.

    I did. They said to use what felt right. Well since I just started nothing feels right!

    I know the feeling, I was never really comfortable with 108's and I bought 180's and felt they were a bit bulky on my hands....Too bad they don't have like a 140 or something.

    Only hand wraps we ever used were the Muay Kaad rope wraps. Really though use what feels right and if those to don't try the Mexican wraps or using a straight tape wrap.

    As already said, it's mainly up to what feels right for you. But for the heavy bag the 180" wraps are not a bad idea, unless your gloves are on the tighter side.
    I use 180" all the time with boxing gloves.
