Tired of fighting, just cut it lengthwise and will rewrap. The tape had bunched up at the end I was pulling toward, at least that was part of the problem. It cut pretty clean so not real worried about that, it probably needed another wrap of CF anyway for added strength.
$17 steel tube 10'
$27 CF sleeve(have enough for 2nd wrap)
~$5 CF 6 oz under the sleeve
~$10 CF for paddle blade
~$10 resin
Total price $69
Any decent CF SUP paddle $250-$450
I think Im still good!

The men were amazed, and said, "What kind of a man is this, that even the winds and the sea obey Him?" Matthew 8:27
