Well; I really didn't say that.  I said if not used judiciously it "is
likely to be"
be a waste of money, and I'll stand by that.  I'm confident, of course, that
in my wings the carbon is used judiciously.

I don't think you meant this, because if the compressive forces in your
wings were not equaled by the tensile forces; the wing would surely
collapse.

Appreciate your additional input.
