CF is strongest when pulled or pushed along with or parallel to the weave. If you have a sheet of CF, and you push on it from either flat side, it will bend and eventually break. The CF tub in the Enzo has its strengths from all of the curcves and ridges that are built into it along with most likely the honecomb material that is most often used for the base.
