never even seen flax fabric at least any intended to be a laminate layer. Black Diamond Helios seem to describe flax as part of the core like this:

dps core looks like the same material:

you need high pressure to get a decent flax/epoxy laminate, otherwise it tends to become heavy afaik

AFAIK flax has great dampening properties, and I think dampening along the length of the ski is more important than torsional dampening, hence I use thin Uni flax and normal triax/biax carbon. I love riding the results!
