sounds insane thick. In the event that u wanna complete 2 layers I have calced .3.

What are ypu attempting to acheive?

Firmness longitudenally?

Tortional firmness?

Sogginess from metal weight?

What flax weight are u useing?

Ive done 6x6inch layups with triax glass and 1/4" utilize cant twist them.

Some race skis simply have one layer of light weight biax and after that the titanal.

My main goal is to achieve a damp ski that handles like a race ski that's torsional stiff, grips ice well yet bends longitudinally.

I made a test piece also, but can't recall the exact size and dimensions, probably 6x12inch. 1/16in ash veneer with flax, .6 titanal, on each side of the ash, bonded with entropy resin. I could not bend it no matter what. I placed 2 bricks under it and stood in the middle of the sample and it did not flex. Long story short the sample piece doesn't represent a ski. Although it did tell me that I was able to bond all that material with any problems.

The flax is a biax weave 350 gsm. Honestly the ski is not thick at all.

There are many skis on the market that have 1 layer of metal on top, not just race skis.
