Kookaburra Ghost 1.2 Cricket Bat English Willow
The Ghost has become a firm favorite of players at all levels of the game who loved the massive profile that it possesses. The 2019 Ghost builds on that popularity by offering players a significantly lighter version of its predecessor making it suitable for players who prefer lighter bats without compromising on the original Ghosts minimal scallop design.
The Kookaburra Ghost 1.0 cricket bat, has been handmade using Premium grade 2 unbleached English willow.
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
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
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.
