Any suggestions how to remove very perished grips – that have gone hard and cracked, and then breaks off on tiny little pieces.  I have had these before where the come off very easily albeit making a huge mess in her kitchen (not makin that mistake twice)  but in this case i have now the rubber seems to have become stuck to the shaft rather then the tape or glue itself, so extremely hard to remove.  30yo club so probably original grip, and taken about 10 mins to remove 2 inches, and i have lost patience.

I would be tempted to set the bugger on fire – but its graphite shaft this time so not the best idea.
