What kind of ball is this?

What is this ball? I bought a set of two years ago and the label on the tube is gone. It is about 1.75 inches and very firm rubber. So too small to be a racquet or lacrosse ball I think? Too firm to be a squash ball. I’m desperate to find another one as it is the only thing that gets the knots out of my shoulders after a day hunched over the laptop. I’ve been googling for 3 days and can’t figure it out. Photo here

I searched Amazon for "1.75 inch rubber ball" and found this:

Sounds like you're using it for what it is designed for.

Slightly bigger, but we use these.

Looks like a Lacrosse ball to me, but if your measurement is accurate it is indeed too small.

racquet or lacrosse ball

Racquet ball is hollow (filled with air), as is a squash ball; lacrosse ball is solid rubber.

Perhaps this page would be of use.

Also slightly bigger, but cheaper. We got them on advice from my wife's Pilates instructor, and they work great:
