BECKER CUSTOM CUES
Maker of pool cues since 1995 in Ft. Collins, Colorado, presently in Pierce, Colorado.
Roland Becker began working in the billiard machine shop at Woodward Governor right out of high school in 1972. He went through a two-year apprentice program at Woodward about five years after high school. He has worked as a tooling machinist for the past 15 years, but has been in the machining trade for the last 30 years. The precision and attention to detail of making and designing high quality plastic injection molds has helped Roland in the making of his one-of-a-kind quality cues. He has always enjoyed working with wood, but wood brings out his allergies, from extreme skin rash to asthma attacks. Therefore, cue making will remain a hobby and be limited as to the number of cues put out each year. Roland does not use CNC. He uses all manual tools in his cuemaking.
Becker credits two people with inspiring his work. Burt Kellerman, a cue collector in Denver, saw the potential Roland had and kept giving him challenges. The other person was the late Jerry Franklin of South West Cues. Jerry and Roland talked at length, and when Jerry found out Roland´s background, he asked him to make some patterns for their pantograph. Getting with Jerry´s brother Gary, he has made several of their patterns.
Roland tries to exceed his customer´s expectations in his cuemaking. Appearance and performance of his cues are of extreme importance to Roland, and all of his cues are one-of-a-kind. They can be identified by the king chess piece with a B in the middle, to be found on the butt cap. If you have a Becker cue that needs further identification or repair, or would like to talk to Roland about ordering a new cue, contact Becker Custom Cues, which is listed in the Trademark Index.
