Aftermarket 6MT flywheel found

We are all well aware of the $1,500+ price tag our flywheels have when buying directly form Acura/Honda. Up until now there were no aftermarket manufacturers for it.
On the topic of resurfacing dual mass flywheels, there is a divided community with polarizing opinions arguing for and against the practice of machining our flywheels when the time comes to replace the clutch.
I reached out to Aasco Motorsports in Anaheim CA and this is their response:
My Inquiry
"Hi,
I'm looking for a direct fit flywheel for my 2011Acura TL3.7 SH-AWD 6 speed manual transmission Do you folks make a non-racing basic flywheel that would fit this car? if so how much would it be?Thank you"
Their response
"Yes we do it is part #100110-11, it is a direct OE replacement light weight aluminum flywheel that weighs 15lbs. The price is $655.00 and good in stock.Thank you"

4th Gen TL Flywheel cost is $655 USD, weighs 15lbs and is a direct OE replacement. If anybody can pitch in on how robust Asco's designs are or maybe even installed this flywheel?

The possibility of using the Aasco flywheel has come up here every now and again over the last several years; so far at least, I don't believe I've ever heard of anybody using one.

I've got a SPEC single mass and Stage 3+ clutch. Works a treat. Total cost was less than just the dual mass flywheel.

FWIW this thread got me going down a rabbit hole!
It appears an OEM J37 flywheel is ~32 lbs: https://acurazine.com/forums/3g-tl-p...utches-906678/
And the AASCO is ~14 lbs (see photos on Heelandtoe linked above)

And everything I've found = AASCO is awesome. E.g. https://www.6speedonline.com/forums/...out-there.html

Hmmmm....

That's an 18 lb weight difference! I'm wondering how much driving dynamics will change with that much weight reduction

My current set up is a clutchmasters fx250 clutch kit; (Stage2+) and an AASCO Flywheel; cant speak on how to put everything together but performance wise:
faster revs, so it accelerates quicker when you first hit the throttle; however, top end feels slower.
VTEC don’t feel the same.
I am fully stock otherwise (aside from the basic wheels and suspension upgrade and K&N Performance air filter.)
