  Doesn't exactly answer the 'why' though

... as in, why is composite 'junk'? =[

You did mention durability in passing earlier, but, what?... composite can't be durable? That would seem to be more a function of what kind of layup is used.

A lot of manufacturers seem to be prioritizing low weight at the expense of durability these days. But I don't know that that makes composites in general junk... maybe 'elite'/lightweight layups done in composite, more like.

Here's an article on the subject you may like/possibly concur with:
