Can’t find a flat whisk for non-stick pans

I make a lot of rouxs and gravies and the whisk I always use broke. I’ve been searching and searching for a replacement but can’t find one. Any suggestions where I can find one?

Have you considered using a silicone ball whisk? I've never used one for a roux specifically, but Stella Parks recommends them for pans that don't have rounded corners. http://www.amazon.com/dp/B000MG9RZG/?tag=se-equipment-20

Bed, Bath and Beyond and Amazon both carry silicone coated flat whisks. Another suggestion is to look for a traditional Swedish style birch twig whisk. They are a bit more expensive, but are safe to use with nonstick pans and if taken care of, will last many many years.

Alas. Suggestions
Silicon whisk (balloon shape)
Flat edge wooden stirrer (to get goid bits up from bottom of pan)
Blending - do before heating with stick blender or similar
Chop sticks
