sizing with MS Tortue

Greetings to all....

I read somewhere that the MS Tortue boules feel smaller in your hand than other boules of the same diameter.....and that you should buy a larger size than usual to compensate for this.....any advice on this one?.

Many thanks,

I've got a couple of sets - I used to be the UK retailer for MS. One is now fairly worn, the other less so.

I've never noticed any difference in feel. However, the 'feel' of a boule is always a matter of personal preference - so best to try before you buy!

Interesting that - because of their appearance - some players think 'you can't shoot' with these boules. Again I find them perfectly ok for shooting and it didn't seem to pose any problem for Claude Weibel, the Belgium champion, when he was using these boules.
