Guess my days as a child watching cartoons wasnt as much of a waste as my mom said it would be.

Astro was also called Trailfas

-- Gary in Ohio (, February 20, 2002.

That name differs with the one I found months ago, and I just did a resarch of the subject and find both your spelling and Faltraz as the name listed in different places so this one now has me stumped too, but you found a correct answer so BINGO.

New question: How many degrees of tilt from vertical is necessary for a regulation bowling pin to fall?

-- mitch hearn (, February 20, 2002.

Now tell the truth here, who among us has never taken our mechanical drawing compasses and protractors with us to measure the pins?!!?

-- mitch hearn (, February 20, 2002.

I would say 45 degrees, any less and it would probably wobble but not fall.

-- Melissa in SE Ohio (, February 20, 2002.

Its a lot less than that.~

-- mitch hearn (, February 20, 2002.

23 1/2 degrees, truly just a guess.

-- Bob in WI (, February 20, 2002.

Remember how small the bottoms are, its a very small amount of degrees.~

-- mitch hearn (, February 20, 2002.

Five degrees.

-- Randal at home in Brazil (, February 20, 2002.

Randal is close but under, others are over.~

About 14.5 degrees

-- Rick in Southwest WV (, February 20, 2002.

Its almost 10:45 here e.s.t., I am crashing try 7.5 degrees from vertical. Strangly enough, a rocking of up to 16 degrees allows the pin to return to stable in the event the pin twice encounters another pin with counter directional rebound. Tell this to your bowling leauge next Tuesday!!?

-- mitch hearn (, February 20, 2002.

I can't believe that there are people in this world who took the time to figure this out. Some people take their bowling REALLY seriously.
