Kookaburra blaze pro cricket bats are handcrafted ( not machine made ) as 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 maximize it’s performance. Over 50 different processes go into the production of each Kookaburra bat.
Kookaburra bats feature a process known as 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.
The Kookaburra Blaze Pro is classified as a lightweight bat. 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.
