The problem is that the ILF limbs are not maid as a matched pair. If you can get the limbs to bend the same through the draw cycle, they'll be a lot quieter. Put your ILF bow on a tiller tree once to see.

Another thing to consider. Carbon bows are only alive for so long until they fail. Wood/glass bows will be around for decades. How many old Bear bows are still around from the 60's and 70's? The carbon doesn't fail, the lams glued to the carbon fails because carbon is too rigid and puts all the compression stress on the lams.
