The question is really do you need the carbon? There is a myth that a winch is a really good way to break your wing. As a matter of fact that is what they were designed to do. in fact you can be easier on a wing with a winch as long as you use the off part of the foot switch. I have launched HLG's with all balsa spars without breaking them. It can be done. Plenty of my customers have built their Mirages with no carbon. Maybe a bit of wrapping the joiner boxes and are still flying the models. So I would suggest that you think about what the real benefit will be with adding carbon to a Mirage wing. I'm not saying don't do it but just to think about it and asking questions here like this is a good start.
