Posted:Monkey fists arent what I would recomend learning with *ouch*. Personaly I have allways hated the ball chain. I heard they harbor fuel inside the links. Anyway when it come to wraps take it from me... wear protection-something with thumb holes. Even with long sleeve shirts they can creep back. The metal on the wichs will give you an instant (lasting) burn. You can allso have little kevlar covers that you dip in water and slide down the chain to cover the exposed metal if you dont want to wear protection, but it is still slightly burns.
