Our review. The CX Cou is a versatile boule. I used it for many years as a pointer and part shooter. The balance of the boule is one of the best available. The carbon steel does have a tendency to oxidise and mine still have the mark left by a wet rag when I put them away without drying them off. The grip is just super on a plain boule and I still use mine as a practice set now I have upgraded to the ATX for general play. Wear is shown below and mine still have plenty of time left in them and they are over 10 years old.
