HARDNESS
SOFT petanque boule
Colour fastness of the black colour
The colour lightens with every game. The speed at which it lightens can vary from 1 month to never. Perspiration on the player's hand and especially its acidity determines this speed. Certain players may therefore keep their boules black for more than a year while other players quickly obtain a satiny colour.
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 and lighter for shooters).4. The boule's feel in your hand (if you can't decide between two sizes).
What does a petanque boule's hardness indicate?
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 regularly replacing them to keep a high quality of game play.
HOW ARE COMPETITION-APPROVED GEOLOGIC 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 welded together and rotated until they are spherical. - The boule is then engraved, baked, and dipped into water, which will determine its 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.

    Leider nicht gut

    Die Kugeln sind zu hart. Man hat das Gefühl als wenn man mit einer Kugellagerkugel spielt. Durch die Härte gibt es leider keinen Grip und dadurch ist die Kugel schlecht zu halten.

    Hallo Axel,

    vielen Dank für dein Feedback zu den Boulekugeln.

    Schade dass du mit den Kugeln nicht zufrieden bist. Die Kugeln sind speziell für den Wettkampf konzipiert und werden entsprechend von uns getestet. Gerne kannst du die Kugeln aber kostenlos umtauschen und besser für dich geeignete auswählen.

    Leider nicht empfehlenswert

    Leider nicht so gut. Viel zu hart. Da kann man auch gleich mit einer Kugellagerkugel spielen.
