Dimensioned elevation drawings of a Candlepin measured with height and diameters

A Candlepin is the type of pin used in Candlepin Bowling and is the target at which the bowling ball is directed at during a game. The Candlepin was named after its candle-like appearance. A Candlepin has an almost cylindrical shape that slightly tapers at each end. Unlike other standard bowling pins, they are vertically symmetrical and can be placed on either of its ends. It is also taller than a standard Duckpin or Ten-Pin Bowling Pin.  A Candlepin is able to produce a billiard ball like sound when struck by a bowling ball. Typically, a Candlepin is almost the same weight as a Candlepin bowling ball.

Candlepins have an overall diameter of 2.9375” (74.6 mm); base diameter of 2.125” (54 mm)
, and height of 15.75” (40 cm). The mass of a Candlepin is regulated at 2.43 lb (1.1 kg).
