    PROFILE: 

     

    A - EDGE PROFILE

    Kookaburra's Rounded Face Profile is generally favoured by the more traditional player. The rounded face provides a refine direction of power throughout the hitting zone, but yields a slightly less imposing yet more familiar 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.

     E - FACE PROFILE

    The modern game revolves around the thickness of the blade: 1) Flat Face - levelling out the striking area allows more mass to be retained in the back of the bat, maximising the power profile. 2) Rounded Face – favoured by more traditional players, the slightly rounded face gives a familiar look but yields a less expanded profile.

     F - BOW

    The curve of the bat from the tip of the handle to the end of the toe. Designed to enhance the position of the hands by placing them ahead of the ball, which is essential for good strokeplay.

     

     FEATURES:

     HAND CRAFTED

    Each cleft is different, and although replication by machine would seem a sensible 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

    BIG EDGES

    Increasing the edge profile minimises the power loss caused from ‘off centre’ strikes. Kookaburra bat edges measure up to 40mm (depending on the weight and profile of the bat) – so you can be sure you’ll lose little, when it doesn’t come out of the middle.

     SUPER SPINE

    Players want bats to look as big as possible; hence they want the spine to be as high as it can be. The Kookaburra ‘Super Spine’ measures up to 68mm (depending on the weight and profile of the bat), generating maximum power through every single ball.

    FLAT FACE

    Kookaburra’s Flat Face Profile levels out the striking area allowing more mass to be retained in the back and edges of the bat. By maximising the amount of willow behind the striking area, the bat gains a larger profile and produces more power.

    POWER DRIVE

    Kookaburra handles utilise multiple pieces of specially selected cane to enhance strength. This reinforces the bond between handle & blade thereby maximising durability and power transfer.

    ANGLED TOE

    All Kookaburra bats have a slightly angled toe – this allows the bat to sit comfortably in the stance and promote the preferred hand position of being slightly ahead of the blade.

    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

    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.
