Throwing (heaving) pear

Does anyone know where I can get a throwing/heaving pear. I think that is the name for it. The ones that I have used are a weighted rubber pear-shaped ball with an eye attached. It is used to throw the rope a long distance, like over a tree limb. I guess you could say it is a modern day replacement for a monkeyfist knot.

Thanks Mango Man,
I haven't found what I am lookig for. But, I have seen some throwing weights at some online arborist supply - basically a pouch filled with shot for about $8.
