Concept 20 6
A powerful profile with a higher middle & unique scalloping to the toe offers a superb combination of pick up & performance
MODEL: Concept 20 6 Cricket Bat
Concept 20 6 Cricket Bat has been handmade using unbleached English willow. with a non oil Pro Shield face applied.
1/2 inch shorter blade with 1/2 inch longer new Counter Balance handle and square tapered toe.
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
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.

Edge Profile & Thickness
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.
