What is a prototype?

A prototype is a preliminary model of something. Projects that offer physical products need to show backers documentation of a working prototype. This gallery features photos, videos, and other visual documentation that will give backers a sense of what’s been accomplished so far and what’s left to do. Though the development process can vary for each project, these are the stages we typically see:

Proof of Concept

Explorations that test ideas and functionality.

Functional Prototype

Demonstrates the functionality of the final product, but looks different.

Appearance Prototype

Looks like the final product, but is not functional.

Design Prototype

Appearance and function match the final product, but is made with different manufacturing methods.

Production Prototype

Appearance, function, and manufacturing methods match the final product.

The dawn of a new era for the pool

Every product is the perfect syntesis of a long and scrupulous analysis process to give to the player the best instrument on the market to afford any kind of game situation.      

Becue leaves nothing to chance. From the design to the production process, everything follows a scientific logic. The careful and meticulous analysis of technical data has allowed us to reach infinitesimal precision in every detail.

Why choose a Becue shaft:

Model: 5.1     

Weight: 120 g (standard)

Technology: Aurora Front End

Tip: Ultraskin M (standard)

1. The construction system of lamination allows us to calibrate the performance of our shafts with a precision impossible to obtain with the use of traditional materials such as wood.

2. Becue shafts are equipped with the exclusive patented Aurora Front End Technology system, which allows a drastic reduction of the mass of the tip, together with ensuring its constructive structure, as well as very low deflection.

3. Thanks to the materials used in producing Becue shafts, they are unaffected by climatic conditions and the passage of time, and they guarantee dimensional stability and performance over the years.

Aurora front end technology

Breathe, relax, forget, have fun: do what you really want to do.

 

 

  

Imagine being able to think only about the shot that you're making, imagine being able to clear your mind of any inkling of what will happen next. Imagine that each of your shots is the best shot. Imagine being able to stop having to constantly correct your shots to compensate for the displacement of your pool cue.   

Now stop imagining: Aurora Front End Technology is a reality.

After years of research, studies, trials, and tests with the technical collaboration of international professionals in the game of billiards, we have produced a shaft with the most advanced technology available on the market. Aurora Front End Technology completely redefines the concept of the billiard cue. We have brought the level of precision to the farthest reaches of the possible. And we have done this in order to give the player the best performance and the greatest comfort while playing the game.

The special Aurora patented system is a solution that revolutionizes the concept of displacement (deflection) of the pool cue. Finally, you can focus solely on the game. Your game. Each shot will be the exact result of your will and, clearly, of your ability. Stop trying to learn how to use your pool cue right now and concentrate your energies purely on improving your technique.

The name of the shaft is a reminder of the 5 characteristics that Becue has managed to combine in it:

  • Speed
  • Push
  • Precision
  • Low Deflection
  • Feeling

Becue shafts, in addition to providing outstanding performance, give the player the sense of feeling and never before experienced comfort. The final working is, in fact, the result of years of research and testing aimed at keeping its surfaces always maximally fluid, even after lengthy use. Additionally, the special Becue Shaft Kit is available. It is designed exclusively for Becue shafts, and it provides all the ideal tools for optimal cleaning and enduring maintenance.

Leonardo Balance System

 

Is an exclusive registered patent of Becue. Unique among its kind, it represents a veritable revolution in the panorama of balancing systems. In fact, LBS allows you to not only obtain the desired weight with absolute precision, but it also enables you to change it very quickly, permitting you to change the construction of the pool cue even while playing the game.     

Our weights, thanks to the innovative free release anchorage system and the centesimal precision construction, allow for quick insertion via three simple steps: bumper opening, insertion of desired weight, and bumper closing.

Find the feeling with the game set-up. Finally, it will be a rapid, effective action, and, above all, one that is easily repeatable.     

All Becue pool game cues are produced with an end weight of 19 oz., with the possibility of incrementing it by ½ oz., from time to time. Up to a maximum weight of 21 oz.

Becue Butt     

Becue butts are made with the express purpose of ensuring absolute dimensional stability and performance over time, regardless of weather conditions, storage, or use. In one word Becue butts can be defined as “ETERNAL”.     

They are also designed to couple perfectly with our shafts, creating a perfect synergy for optimal performance in every type of shot. The characteristics of the employed materials, and how they are worked, ensure a drastic reduction in the abnormal vibrations transmitted to the player's hand when making a shot, allowing the player total control while playing the game. Sport results will finally be dependent only on the skill of the top player, and not on the characteristics or limitations of the instrument the player uses.

The structure of Becue butts, moreover, allows the maximum transmission of energy to the shaft, precisely rendering the desired effect, and not as a result of uncontrollable variables, as often happens with traditional pool cues, which are subject to the well-known problem of “DEFLECTION.”

The metal joints, made from materials of the utmost quality and reliability, such as stainless steel and titanium, combined with our exclusive B-LOCK system, are the result of extensive studies conducted to identify the best possible combination of junction strength and “sincerity” for the transmission of the shot. All this has enabled us to produce a pool cue that provides maximum surface contact between its components and gives the player the priceless feeling of playing with a pool cue that is made of a single piece.

Technologies applied on the pool cues

Three Principles Behind the Revolution     

1. The construction method and the materials used by Becue allow the exact repeatability of the products, thus ensuring respect for all parameters that enable our shafts to rank as the best option on the market.

2. The exclusive B-Lock system ensures not only a solid union of the butt and shaft, but also endows the player with the ultimate in feeling. Performance and pleasure go hand in hand in the game.

3. The entire assembly process of the materials, and the very types of materials, ensure the maximum transfer of energy during the impact on the billiard ball, while minimizing undesirable vibrations. This allows for extreme control of the response of the white billiard ball, something that is unthinkable with traditional pool cues.

Quality & Design

      

      

One of the challenges of Becue was reconciling the very high quality of its products with innovative and refined design. Becue products draw a clear dividing line with the past. From pool cues to accessories, every feature is given special attention, down to the smallest detail. Becue products are a hymn to aesthetics and to the Made in Italy label. Every single component is designed, crafted, and assembled entirely in Italy.

Risks and challenges

Every challenge, and every innovative process, which has as its ambition to become a commercial enterprise, also brings along some risks. The first, the greatest one, is that the idea is not convertible into reality, possibly because it is a mistaken idea.

Becue has already surpassed this risk, because the billiard cues and the patented technology offer extraordinary performance, certified by field tests carried out with the collaboration of internationally renowned professional players.

Becue arrives on Kickstarter after having invested thousands of dollars in research and development, design, prototyping, and testing.

Our work, in addition, has always focused on the industrialization of the production process, in order to guarantee our customers a quality and repeatability that are hardly detectable in the pool cues already on the market.

We can imagine, and we hope it happens, that we may have to deliver products with a slight delay if the requests greatly exceed our forecasts. However, we are also equipped to respond quickly to this situation.
The benefits in investing in this project, instead, can be listed as follows:

• Help introduce a revolutionary, high-tech product to a market that now appears essentially static, dominated by a few companies.

• Treat yourself to an extraordinary product, both in terms of performance and in design. A product that marks the beginning of a revolution in the world of billiards.

• Have at one's disposal the most advanced technology and the greatest performance on the market, which includes the use of two Becue exclusive patents.

• Owning an instrument that will allow the player to concentrate fully on their own individual game techniques.

• Owning a unique designed object that is wholly made in Italy by means of undergoing a control process, and which is of the highest quality level.
