I have a question though (for captain obvious), you said your wraps are 180? is that in cm or in? i'm not sure how long mine are but i've looked at a lot of different ways to wrap and with some, like yours, i dont have enough wrap to do all of that.
Good point!

About the handwraps, they are usually measured in inches. Here are the ones I usually get:
Classic Handwraps at Ringside.com

These are 170" length by 2" width. If you find that you dont have enough to do the wrap procedure as listed with a standard 170-180" wrap, thats okay. Just modify the procedure to your liking. Jut make sure that the wrap is comfortable, secure, and not cutting off circulation. Then be sure that you have given yourself good knuckle, wrist, and hand protection with the wrap. Its something that you can kind of tweak to suit what feels and works for you best

okay cool thanks cap'n! i ordered some new ones that are the right length and i can really tell the difference. The other ones i had basically just covered my hands and kept them from ripping the skin off, but these ones actually provide padding!

Thats pretty good as well yes. I really like this video. The tape is a nice addition, but not required. Important things to note in this video:
1. The cross pattern to protect the top of the hand
2. Making sure you keep the fingers spread and prevent cutting off circulation

Although he uses the mexican style wraps in this video, I prefer the standard. The Mexican wraps have elastic in them which makes for a nice comfortable fit. HOWEVER, once you start sweating in them, they can compress more and cut off circulation moreso than the standard wraps. Something to keep in mind.

Hello everyone and I thank you in advance for the help.

My question: I currently use Everlast classic hands wraps when I train but just recently I discovered some of their new "Advanced" wraps. With these Advanced wraps there is no need to take the extra time time unroll, wrap your hands, and reroll like the classic waps.

What do you all think?

here's a link Advanced Handwraps-Everlast.com
