If you are looking for a full size hawk that is still very light weight, try a Beaver Bill hawk.

Beaver Bill Throwing Hawks

I had the privilege of throwing a couple that belonged to a friend and won a competition with it. I still need to purchase one of my own. They are light weight and excellent to throw!

You're only allowed a 4" bit for most competitions.

Yes. But most of those BB hawks were listed at 3 3/4" to 4". For most competitions a 4" is needed to completely cut a playing card in half lengthways. That is a very common target. Anything under 4" could never win. The old standby H&B meets the requirements and is as good a currently made hawk as one is going to fine. OTOH, I have a hawk I bought at ronny very reasonably. Like it for looks and handling. Not until later I discovered in tiny letters "PAKISTAN". I know it is cast but serves me OK. I filed off the offending word.

"War is an ugly thing, but not the ugliest of things. The decayed and degraded state of moral and patriotic feeling which thinks that nothing is worth war is much worse. The person who has nothing for which he is willing to fight, nothing which is more important than his own personal safety, is a miserable creature and has no chance of being free unless made and kept so by the exertions of better men than himself."
~ John Stuart Mill (1806 - 1873)
