    Why do the balls look so small? Is the video just deceiving that way?

      I believe this is duckpin bowling, a popular version of bowling in Quebec:

      Francis, c'est vrai? If yes, I think we should alter the title of the record and rules to reflect that.

      Where are you guys writing from? You don't have this kind of bowling in your town/states/province/country?

      I don't really know what's the professional name cause here in Quebec most of people just call it small bowls or big bowls but it's not duckpins, i think it's the same bowl but the pins are slimmer than duckpins

      Ahh, yes, it seems like this is "duckpin" as opposed to traditional "ten-pin". I've also played "candlepin" in New England. See and
