2018 sees the Surge consolidate it's place as one of the most stylish bats available in the market. Smooth graphics mean the Surge not only acts the part but looks it. The revised profile maintains it's relatively low middle, with distinctive shaping to the toe to enhance pick up.
CONFORMS TO MCC LAW 5 - MATCH LEGAL
MODEL: Surge 800
Kookaburra Surge 800 has been handmade using premium Grade 3 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.

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.
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.
Rounded Face – favoured by more traditional players, the slightly rounded face gives a familiar look but yields a less expanded profile.
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.
