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.
