It can take impacts, but eventually it will break. Look at carbon hockey sticks for example.

I worked in a composite lab at a university, and made a catch and throw disc for fun... (it looked exactly like this) what I found out was the edges are super sharp... and the bottom edges of the rim are going to get ground up with landings on asphalt and become shaaarp as hell causing hazardous carbon splinters and deposits into the hand... solution: wear really tough gloves to protect your fingers.

*edit: I just read the whole page and realized you have used a plastic edge to prevent splinters

One of the first things I realized was that I needed a good protective edge. Those splinters are not fun!

Of course I would love to sell these discs for a lower price, but for now, based on all the costs it wouldn't be reasonable or worth it to sell them for less. In fact, I was suggested to sell the discs at $100 a piece, but that just seemed way too crazy.

My point is that they still break...

That is a great idea. Less likely to be lost, no need for pdga approval, might cost less.

I would say if you are trying to market it to disc golfers that being legal to use in a round might be a concern.
