How to choose the right petanque boule
Choose your petanque boule based on: 1. Desired bounce quality (hard, semi-soft, or soft boule) 2. Size of your hand (diameter). 3. Your playing style, which determines the weight of your boule (heavier for pointers, lighter for shooters). 4. The boule's feel in your hand (if you can't decide between two sizes).
HARD petanque boule
What does hardness mean for a petanque boule?
The boule's hardness is expressed in the ROCKWELL "HRC" unit or in kg/mm². For example, 45 HRC corresponds to 146 kg/mm². The higher the number, the harder the boule. The harder the boule, the less likely it is to get damaged, and the higher its elasticity, and vice versa.
How to clean your petanque boules?
After each match, wipe off dust with a clean cloth. Once a month, oil your petanque boules to prevent them from rusting. Cleaning regularly lengthens the lifespan of your petanque boules while also ensuring the quality of your match.

    Bought a set of these 2 weeks ago. really happy with them - used them allot in that time on a variety of surfaces. great finish - wears well, roll well, good choice of size and weight. I've only marked them down as they do not come with a bag.
