I wouldn't drill holes completely through the blade to lighten it,what I would do is mill on the bottom side for weight removal but not completely through as you still want the blade to retain rigidity under stress loads,reduce grass build up and to reduce wind turbulence drag that might impede discharging.
This was s good discussion I learned a lot from everyone
