    I have a Babolat leather grip on my racket. If I remove the grip to use a synthetic one, will I be able to put the leather on a different racket?

    yes you will. but remember, when you replace a leather grip w/ a synthetic one, your racket will be lighter at the handle since the leather grip is heavier than the synthetic.

    It might be a little tougher, depending on how old the babolat grip is. The sticky part usually helps when starting to put on the grip, but it shouldn't be too hard without it.

    As the others stated, you should be able to, but sometimes, the length ends up a bit off - short lots of the time if switching between different types of grips.

    Yes you will be able to reuse it, but it will be less sticky.

    Just get some thin doublesided tape. You'll just need to wrap a little bit of tape around the bottom of the butcap. Just to stop the grip slipping.

    for the most part, but it might get kinda awkward, as i've tried. and it didn't come out a 100%
