Kookaburra cricket bats

  • Sharebar

Kookaburra cricket bats, as the name might suggest, originated out of Australia (for those who don’t know a kookaburra is a bird native to the land down under).  The bats are distinctive with the kookaburra bird logo proudly displayed on each bat making them look cool, classy and ready for action.

There are a range of bats available and the variety of choice is designed for all age ranges, abilities and budgets.  The range is described in further detail below.  If you have never picked up a kookaburra bat before it is a good idea to visit a local supplier to get a feel for them.  Even better would be to use on for real.  If you have a friend who has one or if there is a local cricket club you could visit try asking for a trial with one or more to give you an impression of their quality.
Today and in the past, Kookaburra bats are used by numerous famous international cricketers.  Manufacturers look to cricket stars to endorse their products (not just bats but also gloves, pads and helmets for example) and Kookaburra are no exception with cricket players of the highest international quality endorsing and using the bats in the field of action.  Ricky Ponting and Michael Hussey of Australia, Owais Shah of England and AB De Villiers of South Africa all use and have endorsed Kookaburra cricket bats to name just a few players.  In Decmeber 2011 it was announced that Ian Bell of England would also be using the new Kookaburra Recoil bat.
HISTORY
The history of Kookaburra sports gear and equipment dates back over 120 years to 1890 when Alfred Grace Thompson established his new business.  Once a maker of horse saddles and harnesses he saw that demand diminished as the use of horses became increasingly replaced by the motorization.  With his skills he turned to the manufacture of sporting products, starting with cricket balls (the kookaburra cricket ball is still used for first class games in Australia today) and eventually to cricket bats in the 1980’s.  Kookaburra cricket equipment includes the full range of gear including bats, gloves, pads, protectors and footwear.
RANGE
Over the years there have been a variety of bat ranges introduced by Kookaburra. These include Kahuna, Beast, Blade, Rogue, CCX, Genesis, Sword and Ice.  Each bat comes with specific design features tailored for the users preferred requirements and enhancement of attributes such as power, balance, speed and control.
The Kahuna Kookaburra bat range is designed for power.  It has a relatively big middle profile, thicker edges and a power drive handle.  With the increased dimensions the bat offers a bigger ‘sweet spot’ and in the right hands is an effective hitting zone for much more powerful shots and strokes.  The Kahuna 1000 is used by Ricky Ponting (Australia), A.B. De Villiers (South Africa), Martin Guptill (New Zealand) and Luke Wright (England).  Further details about the Kahuna bat range are presented below:
