I have not used a laminated top like you describe, but I do think that those who have sag simply have not supported the top adequately. (BTW, some inserts will also sag under heavy weight, suggest you stay with a thick aluminum one). My table is a version for the one Norm built and has support underneath it near the center, both sides of the insert. It’s over 15 years old and still has no sag. I used 1/2 of a 1 3/8” solid core door to make mine, but I think the results would have been the same with any of the materials mentioned.
