KOOKABURRA: BROWSE AND BUY

KOOKABURRA GHOST 3.1
Strangely bland on the design front for a Kookaburra but perfectly clean and understated.

On the lighter end of the spectrum with a decent middle, albeit nothing particularly special.

It works for Marnus Labuschagne, so you'd be in good company…
Initial impression: 6.5
Build quality: 7
Pick-up/feel: 6.6
Performance: 6.1

RRP: £300

Weight: 2lb 7oz

Edges: 35mm

KOOKABURRA BEAST 6.3
Once upon a time, the bat that everyone wanted.

Not so much anymore despite the best efforts of this 2022 revamp.

The famous beast animation isn't so prominent, which feels like a shame but the nostalgics among you might not care about that!
Initial impression: 6.2
Build quality: 6.4
Pick-up/feel: 7
Performance: 6.5

RRP: £130

Weight: 2lb 8oz

Edges: 35mm

KOOKABURRA RAPID 5.1
Not quite a Kahuna despite its sprinklings of green.

A generous middle and a well-balanced pick-up and among the lighter bats at just 2lb 8oz.

Perhaps didn't play quite as nicely as it looked but not too expensive and an option worth considering.
Initial impression: 7.3
Build quality: 6.9
Pick-up/feel: 6.5
Performance: 6.1

RRP: £175

Weight: 2lb 8oz
