All have produced, just some have been used on better cows than others.

In the big picture all clones are genetically the same. The difference in calves lies in how we manage and select what females will be bred to them. It seems HW original is only used on the best cows so you get the best calves. If you were to swap out a clone with the original who is to say that you would not get the same results, genetically the calf would DNA the same. Most clones at cheaper prices are bred to more middle of the road cows, you get your calves.

I second what TCF said.  From a breeding standpoint all clones are genetically the same.  The only difference would be some mitochondrial DNA difference from the clone and the original, but that is due to residual mitochondrial DNA in the host embryo and will not be passed along in the sperm cell.  Any physical difference you see between the original and clone is going to be because of environment and how they were raised.  Difference in calves out of them is going to be due to cows they were bred to, environment, and how they were raised also.  Genetically they are all the same!
