A very soft boule for intensive shooters that require a high level of accuracy. Treated with carbon for optimal cushioning. Available in 5 diameters at 680 g.

Product benefits

VERY SOFT BOULE, REPLACE AS NEEDED

A seasoned competitor will need at least 2 triplets every year.

BETTER CUSHIONING

The combination of a heat treatment and a surface treatment makes the boule's exterior harder than its interior for optimal cushioning.

MACHINING THE SHELL'S INTERIOR

The interior of the half shells has been machined before assembly to remove all metal residue and to ensure uniform thickness.This process greatly improves the boule's balance during play.

Colour fastness of the black colour

The colour rapidly lightens with every game.

How to choose the right petanque boule

Choose your petanque boule based on:
1. Desired bounce quality (hard, semi-soft, soft, or very 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 hardness mean for a petanque boule?

The boule's hardness is expressed in the ROCKWELL HRC unit or in kg/mm². For example, 35 HRC corresponds to 110 kg/mm².
The higher the number, the harder the boule (FIPJP accepted minimum is 35 HRC, accepted maximum is 50 HRC).The harder the boule, the less likely it is to get damaged, and the higher its elasticity, and vice versa.Regular players who use soft boules should consider frequently changing their boules to avoid undermining their game.

How competition-approved KOODZA boules are 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 machined inside, 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.
