Glass/Kevlar/CF D-Tube

I have a very nice flying RES Glider design with super strong wing spars... Only problem is flutter. I need to stiffen the wood D-Tube to prevent flutter at high speeds. I am considering using .5 oz. Kevlar on a bias wrapped around the D-Tube back ro the spar. I would most likely use surfacing resin as the adhesive. Anyone have experience with this? Will it work?
