Ran accross some inexpensive Sneaky Pete that have what looks like the Dufferin Maple Logo, but they do not say Dufferin. The say Ontario? Are there Dufferins or Clones???? Look like a jointed house Q.

I have 6 Dufferin Sneakys still in the plastic shipping sleeves,
they are virtually indistinguisible from the house cues
EXCEPT, the maple leaf logo and Duff sig is Green instead of red

I've seen these cues. They are not Dufferin cues and are very poor quality. If you want a "beater" cue ...pm me...I have lots of scraps/trade ins, etc.

They are not Dufferin cues. A knock off from China or some other eastern country. They are junk I bought 2 cues and both where crap, and I got them cheap!

Just a note people. Dufferin is now owned by Lucasi. New Dufferins are now made in China not Canada. From what I understand all of Dufferins manufacturing equipment was shiped to China.

Actually, Dufferin was sold to a Chinese factory so they are now owned by the Chinese and is operated out of China. They are still using the same name but the design of their cues are totally different.

You could be looking at a "real" Dufferin manufactured by the new Dufferin factory in China.

Nope...I've seen these cues. They say "Ontario" and are complete junk. They've made 1pc house cues that I've seen for years.
