Carbone / Carbon Controlled Rebound) boule

• , the second of the new generation of OBUT top-range competition boules, Ready-to-petanque kit (3-boule set, one jack and a bag)is a concentrate of all new metallurgical technologies. With this boule, OBUT uses a new carbon steel and adapts a new manufacturing concept specific to the pétanque boule.

• The RCC boule has an incomparable capacity for absorbing impact, particularly on very hard ground when playing a high-lobbed shot, and minimal rebound when playing a "plein fer" direct hit stun shot. Its new carbon alloy steel and its very advanced new treatment process give it three additional properties that win the unanimous support of pétanque champions:

“it falls well when you do a head-on stun shot”
“it remains pleasant to touch”
“it keeps its ‘anti-rebound/anti-bounce’ properties for a long time, even when used intensively”

• After being initially surprising, this boule brings out the best in attacking play on difficult ground (high lobs and "plein fer" direct hi
t stun shots) by good pétanque players.

• RCC is the new Obut carbon boule for a perfectly dropped shot, with controlled bounce and limited wear!
