Recollection Cues

Collectible Cues, Cases & Quality Players


Doug Beasley has been quietly building high quality cue sticks for a long time, using quality woods and pretty designs, and excellent finishes.  I like the fact that he's still making outstanding player-level cues that are easily affordable and providing great options for the everyday player.

This one is a simple merry widow design, but is dressed up through the use of a beautiful piece of wood, and delicate ivory inlays forming an unusual ring pattern.

This Waterfall Bubinga is a magnificent piece of wood.  It's dark and rich, and shows impressive figure.

The little floral inlays that form "rings" at various locations are refined and classy.  They add a lot to this already pretty cue.

Of course, the most important thing about Beasley cues is their outstanding playability  which has made them popular with a lot of top players, including Dennis Orcullo.  They have a very solid, firm hit, with great feel and feedback.  Within your first few shots, you'll notice the intensity of their play.

He adds a black phenolic ring above and below the wrap to add one more delicate feature that adds to the overall appearance of the stick.

I've been very impressed with the hit of these cues.  As usual, I took a few of them to my local pool room for test hitting, and once again they were very impressive.  I like a cue with high sensitivity and solid feedback, and these really fit the bill.

He builds it with a black phenolic butt cap, and a matching black phenolic joint.

He finishes it with a soft piece of black Bison leather.  It looks good, and feels great in the hand.  And, it will get even better with time.

Another quick look at the excellent figure in this bubinga ...

He builds it with a flat-faced joint with a 3/8X10 steel pin.  It comes with two shafts made from premium quality maple, with short Juma ferrules and Moori Brown layered tips.  It weighs 18.7 ounces (15.1, 3.6, 3.6) and is 59 inches long.

This is a great cue by an outstanding builder.  It will make someone a great everyday companion.
