Kookaburra have come out with all bats blazing when it comes to their line of cricket bats for the 2015-2016 cricket season. There is no bat as unique and modern as the new Kookaburra Verve cricket bat. It is the cricket bat of choice of England’s wicketkeeper and hard hitting batsman Joss Buttler.
It differs slightly from many of the other Kookaburra cricket bats in that it has a low profile sweet spot. The low profile sweet spot, is the position that was favored by the great Sachin Tendulkar. The low swell position is indicative of a very powerful bat that allows for playing all around the wicket. The handle of the bat is also very unique in that it is the cushioned round powerdrive. The cushioned element of the handle allows for the batsman to have a minimal amount of vibration no matter where on the bat the ball hits. The powerdrive allows for the batsman to execute maximum power through the blade when playing shots all around the wicket.
It is made from premium English Willow. The scallop concave is in the mid position as is the bow. The sweet spot on the bat is huge and it is extended. There is no doubt that Kookaburra has come along way with their huge selection of bats. At one time, Kookaburra was powered only by their staple cricket bat, the Kookaburra Kahuna. Without belittling the amazing Kahuna, Kookaburra have brought a lot to the market with their new styles of bats that are versatile, durable and superb performers.
There will be few cricket bats this season that will be as balanced and as well crafted as the Kookaburra Verve Cricket Bat.
