- Wikipedia: Duckpin bowling is a variation of 10-pin bowling. The balls used in duckpin bowling are in to 5 in in diameter, weigh 3 lb 6 oz to 3 lb 12 oz each, and lack finger holes. They are thus significantly smaller than those used in ten-pin bowling but are slightly larger and heavier than those used in candlepin bowling. The pins, while arranged in a triangular fashion identical to that used in ten-pin bowling, are shorter, smaller, and lighter than their ten-pin equivalents, which makes it more difficult to achieve a strike. For this reason, the bowler is allowed three rolls per frame.
