Default Gel handwraps?

Does anyone use these as opposed to traditional handwraps, pros and cons?

Yea they dont protect your wrists....and they are alot heavier....but they protect your hands more. Wraps protect your hands and your wrist. I use both

it ****ing works too dude its ****ing sweet! and you only have to go around the knucle area like once or twice and then the rest of the wrap is to use on your wrists so that way your wrist is almost guranteed not to get ****ed up

I currently use gel handwraps and they are no match for traditional handwraps. Traditional handwraps give that natural feel and give great protection for the knuckles and wrists.

I use gel wraps now because I use boxing workouts solely for fitness. But for serious amateurs, there's only one way to go and that's traditional handwraps.
