I don't think you will be able to apply anything like the amount of force required the way you are trying to move it.
You may get it with the winch method I described but the sooner the better. The tubes I have made are usually quite pliable for a day or so after the resin is applied so they have to be laid flat when first off the mandrel but after a couple days they are as stiff as can be. I think you may have been able to winch it off while in the pliable state but that time may have passed.

Do you have more carbon. It may save a lot of time if you get to work on MK2. The candle wax method works like a dream when you want to get the carbon off the mandrel.

I know that the voices in my head aint real,
but they have some pretty good ideas.
There is no such thing as a quick fix and I've never had free lunch!
