The 11 beech wood pins (or skittles) are “ribboned” with colored stripes – 4 matching pairs plus a black stripe kingpin – to allow the greatest variety of games and methods of scoring. Two solid ash balls have the right heft (14 oz.) and size (4" diameter) for a player to demonstrate all manner of spin, English and precision rolls – whatever his or her skills will allow. This handsome set can turn any flat surface - hallway, sidewalk, wet sand at the beach, even a patch of dirt - into hours of family fun. Packed in a handy carrying set.
