  • Distance from pin deck to bottom of masking unit?

    Tried to find the full-scale spec for this measurement but couldn't. How high are you guys mounting the masking units above your mini lanes?

    Seems that since we're standing 21-24 feet or so from the pins rather than 60+ feet, seems like you might need to mount the mask a little higher than in full-scale to compensate for the viewing angle.

    I am 5'10", so I stood at the front of the lane and figured out the line of sight where the bottom of the mask would be 1/2" above the top of the 7-10 pins. Just eyeballed it and compensated for slightly taller people.

      Mine is 13 1/4 inches above the lane surface. I kind of did the same thing, but I am only 5' 7" tall, but I compensated also, but that was my measurement.
