From my experience of training Boxing and selling Boxing gear for years. I think the perfect handwraps (hand protectors that really protect your hands and fists) for training Boxing, Muay Thai, MMA or other combat sports are the elastic boxing handwraps. My personal trainer also agrees with this. They wrap and fit much better and firmer on your fists. A little flexibility is the key. If you use regular boxing handwraps (made of cotton, standard, non elastic style) and wrap your hands too tightly ,it could turn out to be dangerous and harmful for your hands. And if they were wrapped too loose they are not doing any good to protect your hands and fists from the impact and stress your hands receive during training.
Next time you look for a new set of boxing handwraps or Muay Thai handwraps, make sure you get the elastic ones. We have some good ones from Boxsense which are priced the same as the non-elastic and standard Twins handwraps. The price is around $14-$20 depending on where you get them from. If you have never tried elastic boxing hand wraps, do it now and let me know how you like them!
