      Neither of them is genuine. Both copies. But at least the Thais didn't use B&W's name!

                Well I've seen the design around for a while now previously on Phoenix cues, which of course are Thais, but then there are Chinese copies of the Thai cues floating around also !

                  That's my Niche cue, and yes it was bought from Green Baize,and its genuine,the photos were taken with my phone,I made the mistake of ordering a 57in cue,but realise I need a longer cue.

                  Please make sure posters,if you going to post one of my listings,not to throw about accusations of me trying too defraud people.

                    I think if you read back George you will see clearly that nobody has accused you of anything !

                      You - I think that's probably more true than you realize ! Your words

                      Jrc even questioned your comments

                      What are you discussing then? Im intrigued to know.

                        George they are not saying its a copy - they are saying the design of the wording on the badge is similar to a BW Eurika - this is not a bad thing - its a compliment - it is a great design.

                        Modern cue makers copy older classic cue designs like the mannock or the burwat champion - I get what they mean and others do too - perhaps not properly explained.

                          Yes mate I do understand the reason for Billabongs thread/post,but I don't understand Master blaster or EZ comments is the problem I have.Sorry to sound funny,but when Master blaster comes out with my cues not genuine,I have every right to defend myself.

                            George as I have said, no one has accused you personally of anything. You have a cue, you don't want it, so you've decided to sell it. Whether that cue is a copy can be a discussion about the cue, without it reflecting on your personal integrity.

                            ...but while we are on the subject, and you're claiming you've only just bought it, just out of curiosity do you still have the receipt from Greenbaize?

                              I think MB said your cue badge is a copy of the BW and the BW is a glover copy he didn't mean your cue is a fake
