Hello, so I'm working with nomex honeycomb panels with composite fiber on either side. I have a series of screws entering one side of the laminate, but not exiting the other. My question is what composite fiber would be best at retaining the screws (like most resistant to a normal force)? Previously I've been skinning the honeycomb entirely with carbon. But the screw retention feels a bit weak.
The application here is honeycomb cored skis.
A few options:
And I'm guessing these are not the way to go, but perhaps?:
I'd put down carbon, but from past experience it doesn't provide much support to holding screws in the laminate

It's 750g for binding ski combination, Most race bindings are around 115g, about 10g for mounting screws. So a ski around 630g would be perfect.
Cool idea with the swing weight, I could see that making for a much smoother run in straighter lines
