    I put some lead on 9 and 3, now I would like to shorten it a bit. Is it easy to take it off? And does it still stick when reapplied?

    Thanks.

    yes it is pretty easy to take off, but do it slowly, because if you do it too fast, some of the adhesive will stay on the racquet, no fun. It still adheres well the second time too. Just take your time and you'll be fine.

    I took some off this morning. 36 inches was too much. Down to 12 inches. You
    should be careful if some of the tape goes off the edge which it can on thin
    beam racquets. After taking it off, put it on a fairly non-stick surface like
    was paper or Fed-Ex shipping bags.

    It comes off fairly easy if it hasn't been left on for a long time. The longer you
    leave it on, the harder it is to get off cleanly.
