    Default Measurements

    What is the correct way to measure your reach. Where do you begin? I.E. Your middle finger, your middle knuckle or the wrist?
    Thanks,
    Jeremy

    You either go from under the armpit to the knuckle of the middle finger, or both arms out stretched and go from middle finger tip to opposite middle finger tip, this has now been renamed wingspan by some.

    usually both so it can be pretty meaningless since some people have broad backs+short arms, long fingers etc

    Toney Vs Ruiz is an example of that, using the popular reach (armpit to knuckle) measurment Toney outreached Ruiz, but using the span measurement Ruiz was bigger.
