To optimise your game, it is recommended that you play with a boule whose weight is suited to your style of play (pointer, middle player, shooter).
• The most usual weights for men: 690 - 710 g
• The most usual weights for women: 680 - 700 g
DEPENDING ON YOUR TYPE OF PLAY, YOU WILL OPT FOR A DIFFERENT WEIGHT:
Pointers will prefer a heavier boule because it stops faster.
Shooters will prefer a lighter boule, because less effort is required, and the shot is more precise.
