    Livin truth, they are going to rip you to shreds over that "lower chest" thing. I would put on a flame retardant suit if I were you.

    Titan Fury is a good single ply shirt, as is the Inzer Phenom. A good single ply denim would be better than either of those, but takes much longer to master.

    Log back on when you can and let us know how it went. The Fury is a very good single layer poly shirt. Probably the best out there, with the possible exception of the Inzer single Phenom.

    You can do it either way. Personally, I always warm up to the chest, going up in triples to 315 to the chest, then moving on to the boards.
