Vater makes a version of the VF SD9 in Hickory instead of Maple. It's the same length and slightly thinner than a 2B, but I imagine it will work for you. The bead is almost a ball, certainly it's more ball-shaped than a regular 2B acorn tip.
Vater's "Shedder" is actually a little bit bigger in diameter than a 2B, and it has a ball tip.
