New Tropicana Boule Tested in Detroit
Aaron and I tested out the Tropicana boules this afternoon at Cadillac Square Park. The first thing we noticed is the distinct bounciness of the orange-boule. It takes a bit of finesse to get it rolling down the piste. The weight (light) means you need to heft it a bit, but beware - it'll bounce right out of bounds if you're not too careful! I do prefer striations on my boules, but I daresay cutting "stripes" in the Tropicana boules might lead to a messy end.
Speaking of messy ends, I attempted a plombee and not only did my Tropicana boule "not stick" but it split! I'll have to examine my warranty to see if it covers damages after merely 1 game.
