Default fences

ok, so everyone has jumped a chainlink fence before. But how do you guys feel about other kinds of fences?
Wrought iron is the kind i pearsonally hate the most, i grab the top of it verticly and hope for the best when i vault (so easy to hurt your arm/wrist on these).in my opinion most fences can be more dangerous then alot of other obstacles. have any of you come up with any good methods to avoid the dangers of the top of a fence?

Wrought Iron i wouldn't really try to vault if avoidable.
Even then i'd probably opt for a dive roll.

If i could though, i'd sideflip them

i always vault wrought iron( but yes only when i HAVE to) no matter if i have to climb first because they scare the shit outta me, but i was refering to all heights (most fences are about 8ft tall around here). Anyone ever have to go over a temporary fence?

I have no problem with wrought iron fences, wrought iron being a type of metal rather then the shape of the fence.
