What is so special about English Willow?

As the number one choice in bat construction, Kookaburra's English Willow is both incredibly light and reacts remarkably well to heavy impact. Being easy to maintain, hold and very resistant to splitting and tearing, our English willow delivers the properties batters of all ages and abilities need to play at their very best.The potential performance of every Cricket Bat, based on the quality of wood, is evaluated constantly throughout the manufacturing process by our master bat makers.

Contrary to popular belief, Kookaburra emphasizes that cosmetic appearance has minimal correlation with bat performance. The misconception that thin grain bats are superior is debunked, as they may break more easily. On the other hand, wider grain bats, although initially tougher, tend to be more robust pieces of willow that can deliver optimal performance after some play..



Grade One English Willow: What does this mean?

Each bat is meticulously crafted, highlighting the finest grains and impeccable balance that define Grade One willow. The debate over the ideal number of grains in a bat has evolved with the growing demand for English willow. Traditionally, eight straight grains were considered perfect, symbolizing a year in the life of a tree. However, due to faster tree maturity, the grading standards have adapted to accommodate fewer and wider grains.

Throughout production, our bat makers assess each wood cleft to determine the ideal model. Rest assured, every Kookaburra bat reflects the highest quality attainable from its particular grade of willow.
