*Disclaimer, I spend time on strange parts of the internet, where nerds argue over the frequency response and resonant modes of carbon on racing drones, and actually pore over DAQ systems to analyze it... Frequency response is a variable thing, and particularly with larger objects and high layup densities at bends, the frequencies where composites damp incoming vibrations aren't necessarily where you want them, and if somebody is trying to chase out low frequencies that get amplified, the answer is adding stiffness which typically compromises any efforts towards compliance. Seeming stiff, and actually transmitting a particular shock/vibration power spectrum density equivalent are two slightly different things, but definitely related.  Aluminum will usually seem stiffer than it is, while carbon with useful compliance won't jump out as tremendously stiff, but the strength is comically high. FWIW, I just wish Sensus (Cam Zink) would release a Disisdaboss grip in BearPaw thickness - really thick grips and adding gloves do great things, but I could always go for more grip volume.
