Absolutely not. There are multiple plies of carbon fiber weave in a reed. In some sheets of carbon that we cut the reeds from, there are sections where the fiber weave lines up, and makes it look like you have pin holes. However the area is structurally sound as there is clear epoxy resin covering the entire reed petal surface.
When I hold the reed valve up to a light source I can see what look like pin holes in the reed petals. Should I be concerned?
