A - Edge Profile
B - Spine Profile
Kookaburra’s ‘Super Spine’ profiles adopt traditional shaping characteristics which operate in unison with the ‘Big Edge’ profile of the bat – creating a huge apex, with unrivalled amounts of power throughout the length of the blade and exceptional ‘pick up'.
C - Sweet Spot
The position in the blade where performance is maximised. Kookaburra bats are engineered to maximise the size of the sweet spot, allowing the middle of the bat to be spread further across the blade meaning that off centre strikes perform better.
D - Scallop
In the quest to maximise profile, using scallops either side of the spine allow the apex to be extended without dramatically increasing weight. Scallops also maximise edge profile which reduces rotation of the blade in off centre hits, minimising power loss.
Hand Crafted - Each cleft is different, and although replication by machine would seem
asensible direction, it does not allow Kookaburra’s Master Bat Maker
to individually assess and uniquely work every cleft to maximise it’s
performance. Over 50 different processes go into the production of each
Kookaburra bat... TRUE CRAFTSMANSHIP
KPP - This process is done by hand NOT machine and greatly reduces
the time needed to prepare your bat for match play. It is not a
full ‘knocking in’ service and more preparation work by yourself is
advised after purchase.
Naturally Dried - Kookaburra use traditional methods to
prepare willow, with clefts being left to dry
naturally over a period of time rather than
‘flash’ dried in kilns. This gives greater
durability as it allows the willow to find it’s
natural moisture level.
Snake Grip - The unique combination of multi
directional ‘Snake Scales’ creates a solid and
