This set was accurately described so that I received exactly what I expected and in a timely manner. The carrying case for these substantially weighty boules is sturdy and attractive so I can take my set anywhere. The six boules are also shinily attractive, and I saw many just like them in YouTube videos of people playing Petanque. The set also includes the jack, or cochonnet, and a measuring line. This game is so much fun and we appreciate the fact that anyone of almost any age can play this simple game of skill in rolling or tossing balls. I appreciate the fact that the company cautions that these are not intended for tournament use, but are great practice boules for dirt or grass play. It is clearly stated that these should not be played on concrete or gravel, but that once some measure of skill is acquired that stimulates a desire to enter tournaments one may move up to a sturdier tournament set. If you wish to learn how to play Petanque without a large investment for tournament quality boules, this is the set for you.

I bought a 6 ball petanque set and used it for the 1st time a couple of days ago. Even though the new balls didn't help me score better~ they were bright and shiny and well worth the money. The carrying case is a nice blue color and certainly does the job. I'd recommend this company again as their service was great. I ordered the set on a Tuesday and it was delivered on Friday. Good Experience~ fair pricing ~ good quality.
Thanks

I learned pétanque in Provence. I think this is a good set for the price. The little case is efficient for carrying. The rules could be explained a bit more clearly; but maybe that's not too bad a thing. From my experience in France, one of the main attractions of the game is the opportunity to argue.

The 6 Metal Ball Petanque Set was a good purchase. The balls are somewhat heavy and make for a good bociball game. They are attractive and easily handled.

Fun, very authentic pétanque set; balls are very heavy as they should be. No complaints! I have played with this set in sand, on concrete and on grass (even in France) and it is always wonderful.

Love it. I took it to the summer party at the friend's house. We had a blast. The important thing is that it is easy to store (i leave it in the trunk of my car) and fun to play.

I do not recommend this item, they are not metal, they are cooper. NO GOOD

the petanque balls I am using now are made in France from OBUT.
