Further developed with Lancashire and England's Jos Butter, Blaze continues to impose and push the boundaries of what's possible with modern day batting. The 'Pro Preferred' full profile and stealth like graphics compliment each other to create a bat ideal for shots all around the ground in every format of the game.

A - Edge Profile & Thickness

B - Spine Profile

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  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.


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

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.

Lightweight 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.

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.

Players Grip : A Kookaburra original combining circular ridges to provide excellent rotational flexibility in all types of stroke.
