I haven't spent any time thinking about this, but I would like your information.

I drilled a hole in a golf ball and am now using it as a bass pedal beater. It has good weight and rebound. I put a small patch of mole skin on the head just as a protection, but I don't know that it was necessary. The sound is good also.

What other things have guys used as a beater?

Just make sure that the golf ball doesn't separate from the shaft or you'll put the shaft right through the bass drum head on the very next stroke (been there, done that).
