Banneton for Batard

My oval banneton measures 9" x 6" x 2.5", which is fine for a 500g loaf.  I want to get a slightly larger oval banneton that would be suitable for a loaf in the range of 750-850g.  Do any of you use a banneton that might work for this amount of dough?  Please let me know enough details (manufacturer, dimensions, where you bought it, etc.) so that I can track it down on the Internet.  Thanks in advance.

but this is a good site with reasonable prices.I find once  you floured those with rice flour I hardly need to use any flour again...and they are easy to maintain...

Thanks, Kat, but the shipping to the USA would cost much more than the banneton itself.  Looks like a nice company.

Have you ever gotten one of the wood pulp bannetons?  How do they compare to the cane/rattan ones?

is that you have a ballpark size for 750g and 1000g doughs, which will be helpful if you run across a US site that isn't quite as informative.
