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
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.
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
