While I was watching bowling, after the first throw, only the 10 pin remained. The ESPN commentators sometimes called it a 'ringing' 10 pin and at times a 'solid' 10 pin.
What is the difference between these 2 terms?
A ringing 10 pin takes place when the 6 pin wraps/flies around the 10 pin, the 10 pin is struck, but the 10 pin is left standing(1). A solid 10 pin takes place when the 6 pin wraps/flies around the 10 pin, the 10 pin remains untouched and is left standing. This is more common for right-handed bowlers.
