    MARTIN GUPTILL

    Martin Guptill holds the world record for the highest ODI World Cup score (237 no versus West Indies, 2015) and was the leading run scorer in the 2015 ODI World Cup. Few players in world cricket play the short-arm pull on one leg with such elegance.

    DNA:

    Sweet Spot Mid Blade (215mm to 235mm from toe)
    Edge Profile Big Edge' Square (36-40mm)
    Face Profile Flat 'Power Plus' Face
    Spine Profile Super Spine (62 to 67mm)
    Scallop Slight Concave (3-5mm)
    Bow Mid/Low Blade (11-12mm)
    Handle Round Powerdrive
    Grip Players
    Weight Range 2lbs 6 1/2 oz - 2lbs 8oz

     -------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

     PROFILE:

    A - EDGE PROFILE

    Massive ‘Big Edge’ profile which increases from the shoulders and maximises at the sweet spot, generating supreme balance with an extended sweet spot that covers the entire width of the blade. The ‘Big Edge’ forms a vital part of Kookaburra’s renowned power profiles.

    B - SPINE PROFILE

    Kookaburra’s ‘Super Spine’ profiles adopt traditional shaping characteristics which operate in unison with the ‘Big Edge’ profi le of the bat – creating a huge apex, with unrivalled amounts of power throughout the length of the blade and exceptional ‘pick up’.

    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 profi le, the use of scallops either side of the spine allow the apex to be extended without dramatically increasing weight. Scallops also maximise edge profi le which reduces rotation of the blade in off centre hits and the resulting loss of power.

    E - FACE PROFILE

    The modern game revolves around the profile and thickness of the blade – Kookaburra offer two profiles; Flat and Rounded Face. Flat Face bats generate power through profi le (edge and spine size), whilst the more traditional Rounded Face yields enhanced direction of power throughout the hitting zone.

    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.

    --------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    FEATURES:

    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

    BIG EDGES
    Increasing the edge profile minimises the power loss caused from ‘off centre’ strikes. Kookaburra bat edges measure up to 40mm (depending on the weight and profile of the bat) – so you can be sure you’ll lose little, when it doesn’t come out of the middle.

    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.

    SUPER SPINE
    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.

    POWER DRIVE
    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.

    ANGLED TOE
    All Kookaburra bats have a slightly angled toe – this allows the bat to sit comfortably in the stance and promote the preferred hand position of being slightly ahead of the blade.

    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

    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.

    Good light Weight EW Bat
    The bat is lighter than normal bat but gives have good striking power, love the bat and hope it lasts longer. I have to slightly oil and knock it before using it in league matches.
