Furler hard to unfurl/furl on genoa

When I try to unfurl the furler it goes very hard, I need to pull a lot and someone else needs to help at the base with hands. It kind of goes a bit without much effort, then gets stuck and I need significant effort to continue, then after the "hump" it goes easier again.
What could be the problem - I don't see anything in the way at the bottom, I am thinking that something is stuck at the top, like a piece of rope or maybe it needs some lube.

Here is the pic (got my leg there, don't have a better one at the moment) - the furler name is Profurl.
