This is Obut's brand new entry level competition boule.
They are a perfect first set of boules for new players who have begun playing Petanque on a regular basis.
They are semi-soft with a hardness of at least 120kg/mm2 and have a bounce that suits all styles of play. They are a huge step up in performance compared to the old Hard Match boule and for roughly the same price too.
You can point, shoot or do a little bit of both with them. Basically you can have a go at everything with these boules.
These boules combine high levels of performance with a low marking rate so can withstand years of play, thanks to its hard resilient surface.
They have a very nice black satin finish which will fade away over time.
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.
Regular maintenance with oil is recommended to prevent rust.
