The pins are made from sturdy hardwood. They are approximately 6 inches diameter and 12 inches high and almost always include a Kingpin that is around 14 - 15 inches high.
See the Skittle pin timber page for more information on the timber used in the making of these large pins. Wood is a natural material and over time the skittles will become increasingly worn. For more information on returns and defects, read our Timber Quality Statement.

Most people use 5.5 inch lignum vitae or phenolic resin balls with these larger pins. 6 inch balls are also common. See our Skittle Balls page to learn about the different materials for skittle balls.
