    In a perfect world, it would all be ideally placed unidi, but the biax does save some effort. It all depends on your goals. If you really need the weight savings/stiffness aspects, than some well arranged unidi is the way, but if this is a weekend warrior, you could probably live with something a bit less labor intensive, if a tad heavier and slightly more flexible. Using the biax/unidi mix, I'd alternate the layers.
