Collectible Cues, Cases & Quality Players


Here is an elegant cue in a classic design from Doug Beasley.  It is a traditional 4 point cue with ebony points into a birdseye maple nose, with an ebony butt sleeve.  Classic, but beautiful.

The ebony points are long and even, with very sharp veneer work.  And the colors are beautiful - purple, turquoise, brown and natural maple.   It's easy to understand why these sticks are appealing to some of today's best players.

In the base of each point, Doug inlays very pretty piece of abalone, lined with a thick layer of ivory.  This abalone is really beautiful, with lots of color.

Looking at both his veneers and his inlays, you can quickly see how clean and tight the work is in this cue, as in all his cues.  This is the work of an experienced cue maker who has been at his craft for a long time.

He uses a Bison leather wrap, which has a very elegant look, and feels absolutely great.  I really like this wrap, and hope to see more of it.

It's hard not to love the color in these veneers.

All of his work is very tight.  His veneer work shows how meticulous he is in the making of his cues.

This cue has a very clean, subtle look to it.  It really looks like it's built for business - classic lines and traditional patterns.  I love the clean look of the butt sleeve.

The photos really can't do justice to the beauty of this abalone.  In light, with movement, it is really showy.  And being framed in ivory, it looks especially good.

He inlays his DB logo in the bottom portion of the butt.  He uses an oval of ivory with the letters minutely inlaid into that in ebony.

His points are long, sharp and even, ending in a very pretty piece of maple with lots of "birds eyes."
He builds this one with a black phenolic flat-faced joint with a 3/8X10 stainless steel pin, and it hits a ton.  It's 59 inches long and weighs 19.5 ounces. 

After test-hitting a couple of Doug's sticks, it's easy to see why Dennis Orcullo likes them - a very solid, medium stiff hit with great balance and perfect overall "hit."

He builds his shafts from the best tight-grained maple, with his own low deflection technique, using a short, light ferrule.  He installs Moori layered tips.
