I researched and this was the best deal I could find on a name brand 107mm (regulation size) Coleman Bocce Ball Set by at least $27 cheaper (with code) than Amazon so figured it was worth noting. I live in an Italian neighborhood in Chicago with a lot of courts so I can't show up with the common 90mm or 100mm recreational set sold at this price elsewhere. Although the colors are far from the classic Green and Red I figure the color will make them harder for an "accidental" mix up at the courts.
The color is much brighter than the online pictures upon receiving them and are Day-Glo bright. This would make them better for backyard grass play as well for visablity so they can double for yard and court use. Maybe they are updated? Not available at Target B&M but you can return them there obviously. Free S&H at Target.com. Seem good quality and feel like billiard ball resin. The bag is nice but I like it better keeping the cardboard as a firm frame.
UPDATE PRICE with code "PLAY" to save 20%
Coleman Bocce Ball Pro Set with bag @ Target.com $26.39 with code 20% off "PLAY" EXPIRES 6/26 11:59 PT!!

Looks like a great deal for the weekend warrior but if you want pro I found this review on Zon. Still a thumbs up from me as I am the weekend warrior.

Not a "Pro" set as advertised on the side of the bag and package. You get very close to pro size of 107 mm. I measured 106ish. But the weight definitely isn't pro at around 1100 grams. I say "around" because I saw a variance of up to 45 grams between balls. Apparently pro balls are to be 920g with a tolerance of 20g. Also the colour doesn't run through and scratches or chips will show white. Other than that, you are getting easy to see balls that are close to 107mm and 1100 grams. Pretty good for a casual set, but don't call them "pro".

I saw that review. It was ONE review on Amazon. I almost noted it but I don't think it was enough to cite as a reliable source. I've been on this site a long time and I'm looking at them right now. I don't see any lack of integrity. The only difference I see from the pics is that they are much brighter so maybe they are different than the Amazon ones?? I bought them beside the ONE review because the price was such a big difference. I'd like to see some more reviews but I'll get back to you once I play with them on the court. Besides you can return these B&M if you don't like them to Target and an extended warranty with most credit cards plus extended returns. I'm going to give them a shot. Too each his own. If I decide to go pro I'll probably just use these as to make practicing harder if the weight is truly offSmilie but Coleman usually makes good stuff. I'm almost tempted to measure them up now.

One review is just a little too little info for me. It could be a competitor brand or store? Amazon still want's $27 more for the same set. I'll be honest I probably wouldn't of bought them if I didn't have the option to return them in person. Screw sending these heavy things back! Even if that review is legit these are the closest to regulation for the price. You're talking just eyelashes off the regulation size instead of way off like the Amazon ones at the same price! Once I play for sure I'll know and update if this is still being viewed. Everyone is busy this weekend and I'm not about to invite myself in with the old time Italian guys.

I'm not going to take it personally though. People can make up their own minds. From all the research I did this was the best bang for the buck. This was just a public service listing because I did all the work and thought I may as well share it. Didn't do it for big accolades but Thanks for your dilligenceWink
