I've seen small "dead blow" hammers, whose heads are filled with lead shot. Are there any large (say 10 lb or 20 lb) "dead blow" sledgehammers?

In the summer, go to you local fair. You know the game where you try to get the disk to ring the bell? Well, while the carny is taking his smoke break, RUN with the sledge! :D

I've never seen one of those games first hand. A local antique shop had a hammer that might have been from one. However, it was a large wooden mallet, not a metal headed sledge hammer. The head of the mallet appeared to have been cut from a log. There were two iron rings fitted on the ends of the head. I think it would require a certain amount of practice to use a mallet this large effectively.
