Hockey Stick and Grip Texture
 
Does anyone know of a way to remove the grip'um type grip from a hockey shaft? Is there a way to do it?

ive heart that talcum powder helps if u dont like the grip. it wont remove the texture of course but u dont have the effect of it anymore....

Yeah. I heard that too. I heard people say sandpaper but I don't have any so I'm just sort of scratching it off with a pair of teethed scissors. It's taking forever but it works. It scratches off the paint/stick job but I don't care about that at all. It doesn't seem to be damaging the actual stick.

Why not just buy some sandpaper... Shouldn't cost more than $1-2

I'm sure I will at some point just to try it. Some threads had said that sandpaper didn't do anything so I was just curious about alternatives. Scraping it with scissors worked for me, but it is painstakingly slow, so I bet sandpaper will work well.

How bout don't by the hockey sticks with grip texture on them in the first place. I bought the regular one and it has worked absolute wonders. ;)

Thanks for the constructive advice :sarcasm:
It's my backup 2 piece that I'm bringing off the shelves. At the time I bought it, I didn't mind the grip. Now I can't stand it after playing with the snake-grip matte finish or whatever people call it these days.

You can use a brillo pad or similar if you don't have any sand paper laying around

some flex/curve combos are only available in grip.

I'd recommend sandpaper as well, it definitely works.
