Very easy. Just start from one end and unwrap

When you remove the binding  and replace with tape you are likely to feel vibration through the handle when playing a shot.

I wouldnt say Ive felt any difference in the bats Ive got with tape. Obviously means Im finding the middle a lot  ;)

Better quality / thicker handles and or  with sercure  thicker or several handle inserts to reduce shock and as above avoid toe ending ball bowl at pace thickness of tape wraps find  that smooth medical tape gives the best handle feel

I would be sceptical about removing all the binding, more specifically the binding around the shoulders of the bat, I was always told that it adds crucial strength around the handle joint. Similarly to the Aus GN's which still have the bottom 4/5cms bound.

Your probably right. Glues these days are stronger than wood though so you'll probably be alright.

It does also  helps keeps handle rubbers in place and helps prevent  flex at the bottom of the handle
