The life of a pin
A bowling pin can last from a couple of months to a year, in that time it will be hit thousands of times by balls, other pins and against the sides and the deck of the pin area. Small cracks will start to appear at the top and base of the pin, these can effect the way the pin falls or reacts to being hit. This is when the pin is replaced so as to keep a uniformity to the pins on all lanes, preventing any advantages or disadvantages to playing on a different lane. If you are lucky or talented enough examine your pin trophy you will see the damage that led to it being retired.
