Kookaburra Fuse Cricket Bat

Fuse 250

Brand new for 2017, Kookaburra are proud to introduce the Fuse.  Unique shaping to the back of the blade allows the 'middle' to be stretched across the bottom 15" of the bat, creating a huge sweet spot and a bat that performs in every situation.

  • MODEL: Fuse 250
  • CODE: ZB087

The Kookaburra Fuse 250 has been handmade using Premium Grade 5 unbleached English willow.

  • Sizes: SH Only
  • 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

  • Rounded Face

    Kookaburra’s Rounded Face Profile is generally favoured by the more traditional player. The rounded face provides a refined direction of power throughout the hitting zone, but yields a slightly less imposing yet more familiar profile.

  • 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.

  • 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.

  • 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.

  • 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.

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.
B - Spine Profile
Kookaburra’s ‘Super Spine’ profiles adopt traditional shaping characteristics which operate in unison with the ‘Big Edge’ profile 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 profile, using scallops either side of the spine allow the apex to be extended without dramatically increasing weight. Scallops also maximise edge profile which reduces rotation of the blade in off centre hits, minimising power loss.
E - Face Profile
The modern game revolves around the thickness of the blade: 1) Flat Face - levelling out the striking area allows more mass to be retained in the back of the bat, maximising the power profile. 2) Rounded Face – favoured by more traditional players, the slightly rounded face gives a familiar look but yields a less expanded profile.
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.
