Okay, not that I use them much, but recently we were mandated to carry link handcuffs. I personally prefer the hinge, it seems like it is easier to grip with my large hands. Also, since some people are anal about how they actually go on as apposed to getting them on quicker, the hinge cuffs are much easier to get on IMO.
My questions are what style do you use? Is it mandated that you use that style? Do they prefer that you use one style but you can purchase whichever you want? Which style do you like best?
