I was wondering if anyone could suggest a cuemaker who makes a god knockaround pete. I had posted a thread on this before but I cant find the damn thing. Also I was wondering for those who know, in general, when a cuemaker makes a pete using a regular house cue, do they use the whole thing and just add a joint or do they just use the butt and make a new shaft? Thanks.

Dufferin from Canada makes a good knock around one. Most cut house cue in half and put in joint.

Bob also makes a kick-ass breaking cue with a 14mm shaft and a big pin for the joint screw. Very solid.

This is a question of pool history. Was there ever an original Pete and was he in fact sneaky?

I seem to remember when I was younger that there was a cheap wine that was referred to as "sneaky pete". Now I don't know if that was the actual name or just called that because it would sneak up on you. /ccboard/images/graemlins/confused.gif
That was the first time I ever heard that name.

If the cue is $30.00 on ebay it will just be a jointed house cue. Better ones are made using the bottom half of a house cue as a blank and turning it to proper spects and then making a nice shaft for it. Many though are completely custom built with different exotic woods, sometimes with birds eye in the nose and so on. Those are the ones you see for hundreds of dollars.

I would say yes. The first time I saw that name used was in a line of cues made by Palmer for a Pete Margo. Each cue had a different name and one was called the 'Sneaky Pete". Before that I always heard them referred to as "Hustler cues" or just "Hustlers".

That's right. I used to play with Palmers back then. I remember those Pete Margo cues.

Hi Fred! I live about 10 minutes away from Huebler as the Crow flies. It takes about 45 minutes to get there from the bridge in Jeff and then to Linn. I assume you have an older "Golden Age" Huebler? They were great cues at the time!
