    Hello everyone,
    I finally have my first case of mini pins, they arrived at my house today 9/17/16 at 10am. They are a brand new design. Drum roll please!

    WHY are they on there side? I have tried rotating the images, I have tried taking them wide and they still show up wrong? I even tried to post using explore and no luck? Very strange.

    So what do you think?

      These are awesome! Love the flames on the neck. What's the weight on these guys?

          They should be the same weight as the Linds pins. I should have my whole order in early to mid Oct.
          And thanks Coasterp.

          So should they stay with the flame crown or go with 2 red strips?

            Is there a scale you used (IE 1/3), or a size to fit pinsetting equipment?

              I'm more of a traditionalist, so I would prefer stripes if it were an option. I'll be buying some either way though.

                Very nice pins. I'm for stripes, all the way. It's definitively traditional and something I am used to seeing. In addition, it would be easier to mix with the Linds/ Windsome pins that some of us already have.
                If it can't be fixed with a hammer, try a bowling pin! They're heavier and more surface area for whacking!

                  Hello Ted,
                  The mini pins are half scale in size. I don't think they are half scale by weight, neither were the linds pins.

                    The dream was to put red crowns on the pins but I could not get Brunswick to go along with the idea. I am leaning toward Red stripes, as the flames are not uniform as a crown is. I thought about a red strip and a black strip like the old Vulcan bowling pin had but doing 2 color makes the cost per pin to high.

                    Now you know you can't mix brands of pins LOL. My first order is 50 cases if I sell them off quickly I will make a new order with stripes.
                    Your thoughts?

                      I'm a traditionalist with the stripes on the neck. At this point, I shouldn't be choosy. Any idea on price per set.

                        Look great! Definitely a traditionalist here as well and would prefer stripes if we cant get the crown =(. Either way count me in for a few sets as I have re-installed my scaled lane in our new house!!

                          Well, let's say that I won't. Before the AMBC comes over for the inspection I will switch them out for all the same pins, just don't tell anyone

                          BTW, I am for both stripes red.

                              Hi guys! Glad to see the pins finally arrived. I will be ordering a set (or two) despite my bowling lane project being put on hold to make room on the schedule for designing and building new props for my Halloween yard haunt.
