For what? To pull off the paint/graphics? Pull off grip?

That's not a terrible idea, but make sure you use some pretty fine stuff and don't wear too much down. There's a reason there is a graphic overlay on the composite material... it helps protect it.

You're better off spray painting if you want a black stick or something.

Is it a bumpy grip or a smooth sticky grip?

And do you realize you replied exactly 24 hours later, to the minute?

Try one of those scotch brite green pads, I used it to remove some grip on a Bauer Stick'um once.

Yep. It may look a little rough, but it gets the job done. Don't need to really sand too hard though.
