The weight of this bat from a random sample is approximately 2 lbs and 11 ozs. The actual weight may vary slightly for each individual bat.
Kookaburra Ghost combines a genuine MONSTER of a profile with exceptional pick-up. Minimal scalloping through the back of the blade makes it an unbelievable power profile.
The Kookaburra Ghost 200 cricket bat has been handmade using Grade y4 unbleached English willow.
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 maximize its performance. Over 50 different processes go into the production of each Kookaburra bat... TRUE CRAFTSMANSHIP
Increasing the edge profile minimizes the power loss caused by ‘off-center 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.
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.
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 maximizing the amount of willow behind the striking area, the bat gains a larger profile and produces more power.
Kookaburra handles utilize multiple pieces of specially selected cane to enhance strength. This reinforces the bond between handle & blade thereby maximizing durability and power transfer.
All Kookaburra bats have a slightly angled toe – this allows the bat to sit comfortably in the stance and promotes the preferred hand position of being slightly ahead of the blade.
Kookaburra uses 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 its natural moisture level
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.
