The iconic Kookaburra Kahuna has been a staple in the Kookaburra range for over a decade. It's powerful profile, big edges and world renowned colourway make it ideal for the stroke maker who likes to take control and lead by example.
The Kookaburra Big Kahuna Cricket Bat is built with a huge profile and balanced weight, this power packed bat is sure to take balls over the boundary.
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.
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 Rounded Face Profile is generally favoured by the more traditional player. The rounded face provides a refined direction of power throughout the hitting zone, but yields a slightly less imposing yet more familiar profile.
All Kookaburra bats have a slightly angled toe - this allows the bat to sit comfortably in the stance and promote the preferred handposition of being slightly ahead of the blade.
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.
Big Sweet Spot
Engineered to maximise the size of the sweet spot, by optimising the edge, spine and scallop profiles - Kookaburra bats are produced with the maximum sized 'sweet spot' available, building confidence and emphasising strokeplay.
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.
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.
A Kookaburra original combining circular ridges to provide excellent rotational flexibility in all types of stroke.
