How to choose the right petanque boules
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 and lighter for shooters). 4. The boule's feel in your hand (if you can't decide between two sizes).
HARDNESS
SEMI-SOFT 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, 39 HRC corresponds to 124 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. Regular players that use soft boules should consider changing their boules frequently to avoid undermining their game.
How are competition-approved GEOLOGIC petanque boules made
Our petanque competition boules are hollow. Here is how they are made: - A lump of steel heated to 1000°C is flattened and then stamped or forged into a hemisphere. - These hemispheres are then welded together and rotated until they are spherical. - The boule is then engraved, baked, and dipped into water to give it the desired hardness. - Finally, they are polished or varnished and then inspected.
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.

    Rostfrei?

    In der Beschreibung ist vermerkt, dass die Kugeln rostfrei sind, nach gut 2 Monaten sind die Kugeln mit einer Rostschicht überseht. Ich kann diese Kugel leider nicht weiterempfehlen.
