    You can scrape it off. The paint will come off in flaky pieces.

    My 8DX is on it's last legs, lots of chips and a potential crack. I get bored so wanted to see what it looked like nude.

    I love the idea of using an equipment until to its last piece/life.

    There was a thread about removing the paint. Couldn't recall the title correctly.

    I once sanded my new BS-LYD... but only to repair a 1-inch paint chip! lol

    Would look pretty cool playing with a bare carbon racquet though.... keep us posted on how you get on.

    I'm undecided at the moment. I'm pretty sure there's a near fatal crack at 12 o'clock and it wont take another string job.
