Ball and Paddle

One of my students recently returned from a trip to China, and she related how some taiji players were using a rubber-covered paddle and weighted ball, in what I assume is a balance / flow exercise. I've done something similar with round plates, but I'm not sure if this is the same type of exercise.

My question is, what is the name of this exercise / equipment, and are there any US suppliers of the paddles?

Xie-xie!

You are thinking of Taiji Bailong Ball.
See http://www.google.com/search?q=taiji+racket .
