Hi Justin,
Although I'm not saying it 'has' to be a tip strike, I've found that quite often with a Dbox wing or other wings with lots of carbon at the LE, you may not find any nicks. You definitely won't feel the tipstrike though, I've tip-striked twice, first time I had no idea what when wrong, and simply thought it was badly built. Second time I was a bit more aware, and realized what I was doing wrong.
There really isn't many other ways a wing can fail like that I can think of, especially if properly taken care of as you did.
Hope someone with more experience can chime in!

Thomas
