Grass fiber. I havent tried petrol - I also havent used a sharp blade to cut it off as opposed to scrape it off - will give it a try and let you know!

Scrape it off and then rub the area with acetone prior to fitting the replacement.  Try to use less aggressive liquids than petrol, try turps substitute or paint thinner first?

When I replaced the progrip on my 29er recently, I found that good ld white spirit took th glue off fairly well.

Oh thanks for the advice about petrol.  I thought it would be less damaging than acetone.  I would have thought acetone was about the very worse thing you could put on glassfibre.

Acetone = smells like pear drops = nail varnish remover

Varnish your mast with a single pack polyurathane varnish (international Goldspar I think is best).

Put it on very thin otherwise it will take ages to go off.

Your mast will look like new.

Evostik make a glue remover (little red tins in your local hardware store) which gets sail number glue off, so I would imagine it would do progrip glue too. Doesn't damage gelcoat, but will remove spray paint.

BTW, nail varnish remover is cellulose thinners, not acetone.
