It's always good to hear that stolen discs got back to where they belong.

And I agree, the sound of a stone golf disc is intriguing. I picture a couple cavemen throwing towards the wooly mammoth across the tundra.
A buddy of mine works in a high end machine shop. Occasionally he gets bored and whips out things like metal frisbees. The steel proto I saw ran around 12 lbs, it never made it into a production run. He's probably still got thing laying around somewhere.

Ya, I would imagine a steel one would bey waaay heavy. However, I think you could make an aluminum one fairly close to actual weight. I imagine the grip would suck tho (if you actually wanted to try throwing it).
