Boulenciel petanque boules are new to DC Petanque in 2018. They are manufactured in Italy.
The boules featured on this page are made out of stainless steel. So along with all the key features you about to read, you get the added benefits of a stainless steel boule.
They are the most precision balanced Petanque boules in the world. The balancing accuracy is 0.1% of the boules weight. To give you a comparison the Obut ATX's balancing accuracy is 0.5%.
This balance means that your boule will stay straight when you throw. With the supreme balancing of the boules you will really notice it, particularly on fast rolling type terrains with a thin gravel layer.
The precision of the diameter of these boules is also ultra supreme (boulenciel describe them as the most spherical in the world). The accuracy of the diameter is + 0.02mm (2 hundredths).
With boulenciel petanque boules you have the choice of whether you have a soft or semi-soft boule for exactly the same price.
Soft = 110kg/mm2 or Semi-Soft = 118kg/mm2.
110 is the softest legal hardness for a petanque boule so you can expect a very good anti-rebound performance from this boule. The semi-soft also delivers a strong shooting performance but with more durability.
Not only do you get exceptional performance from these boules but they look and feel fantastic. They have a very futuristic look to them with patterns never seen before, so you will certainly stand out on the terrain with them.
The boules in the range are named after planets in the solar system, which is a cool touch.
Venus = Smooth
Mercury = Big Circles
Saturn: = Double Circles
Mars: = Dots
The patterns add a nice subtle grip to the boule, which will work well for pointers and shooters alike.
So to sum up the selling points that make these boule worth the price tag.
These boules conform to the official rules. They show the weight and an identification number.
They are guaranteed for 3 years against defects (due to the manufacturing process). General boule wear or fading of colour are not considered manufacturing defects.
