If any one piece of equipment could be considered a staple of the billiards industry, the Dufferin cue is it. Saunter into any pool hall, and it is a good bet that you will find a selection of house cues with the Dufferin label on them lining the walls. Dufferin one-piece pool cues have become a standard for good reason. Dufferin has been crafting pool cues for over thirty years, and their commitment to excellence results in a well-constructed, durable and affordable product.

Dufferin House Cues: A Standard

Dufferin's house cues are probably what most people would recognize. They are available weights from 18 to 21 ounces, and come with fiber ferrules and an economy leather 12.5 mm tip. The shafts are made from hard rock maple, and the butt sections can be made from one of several woods, including angico, shedua or purple heart. These cues offer a feel of hit that only solid wood can provide.

There are several varieties of the Dufferin house cue. The Q2-M50 model offers a higher four point butt design and a matte finish, while the Q2-M100 has a high gloss finish. The Hi-Run model comes with 12.5 mm Lepro tips and fiber ferrules, and the Hi-Run Ebony has a butt secition made of ebony. The Hi-Run 48 is a special shorter version of these others, which are a standard 57 inches.

Many people do not know that Dufferin also offers two-piece cues made with the same craftsmanship and attention to detail paid to their one-piece cues. The Classic 2 model has an Irish Linen wrap, a forearm made of bacote, and a joint composed of a precision milled brass pin and aluminum collar, providing a solid hit. The Phantom model offers a wood-to-wood joint which provides a softer hit, for those who prefer it. Whichever model you choose, you can be sure that it will provide many years of fun and enjoyment.
