Kookaburra Obsidian has been specially developed for the modern day format. Characterised by a full-bodied profile and huge spine, the Obsidian is remarkably lightweight with outstanding pickup.
The Kookaburra Obsidian Pro Players Cricket Bat is made with Grade 1 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 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.
Despite the quest for maximum profile, certain players still want 'lightweight' bats. The Kookaburra Master Bat Makers use all their skills to produce more big bats which are also lighter than any other Brand - the 'holy grail' for all players.
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.
