Title: Kookaburra 2019
Post by: six and out on October 10, 2018, 06:19:44 PM
Hi all,

I just had sent to me a link to a VIP early look at the Kookaburra 2019 catalogue after I signed up to their website.

I have tried putting the link into here but doesn't seem to work. But it is very easy to sign up.

Very impressed with their new stuff.

The new 'Rampage' Buttler bat looks awesome

Range looks quite decent, pics make all the shapes look quite generic but overall quite decent

That's a lovely looking shape that Rampage.

All look great, always been a Kook fan since having a Gold Crown as a 16yo budding opener. 'Which will allows' though?!

How do I choose between the big kahuna and a ghost obscene????



Not sure I can, have to get one of each.

Any sponsor that can guarantee me the bats in 2.15 gets my business. I’ll also won’t some black pro gloves with it.

Kook luggage range looks the best out of the big brands this year, more understated and classy.

Would love to see the Pro Players duffle up close

Well done, it wasn't letting me link the dropbox for some reason.

I also think the Rampage looks great but also the colours on the Nickel work well.

Although I will never understand why Kookaburra don't have z butterfly style buckle/strap on the top pads like all the other brands. It makes pads fit and much more comfortable.

Really enjoying the simplified grading structure, with a 2.0 mapping to a Grade 2 etc. Makes it so easy to understand what you're getting.

Liner on the Kahuna Pro pads looks interesting, too

Also, they've added 'Alternative Willow' to the Junior ranges which doesn't appear to be Kashmir. Canadian? Serbian?

Did kookaburra run out of stickers on the rear of the rampage ? Looks absolutely dreadful

Are they still doing round faces and oval handles across the range as they did last year?

Liner/inner is the same as last years, but in a distressed look this season. Also similar inner for the rest of the kahuna range.

Are these still made by SG?

Because that wouldn't have shiny new Kookaburra stickers, and if I get a Kahuna I'll be able to bat just like Keaton Jennings... ;)

Ok, have been emailed the price list.......

big Kahuna will be £165 posted uk, and Ghost Obscene will be £135 posted Uk

Big kahuna would be interesting as price is relatively low
If can find a great pick up one that picks lighter than static weight

Don't know the heritage of big kahuna...

£165 for a "grade 4" and £135 for a "grade 5"

It doesn't seem long ago these were the prices of the top end offerings... How times have changed!  :(

I remember picking out a first generation Big Kahuna (grade 1 I think) in the local Intersport... £100, and getting my dad to spend that much took some serious persuading!

What do you mean?
These Indian made kookaburra bats are great? Or that you can get better value bats that are also made in India?

I was looking for a decent profile for my next ROBINSONS SPORTS custom bats, guess what, rampage it is ;)
Lovely shape

Rampage looks nice

What I meant was yeah rampage and KB is made in India but has UK prices

So India better money wise buying Indian prices

anyone else slightly disappointed with the ghost softs?

love the updated bat (mainly stickers) but not a fan of the gloves! don't like the two sausage two split finger design!

never been a big fan of the UK pads mainly because my aus ones are so nice!

Personally the aussie softs look so much better, think i'll wait until the GCCC sale in Feb/March and stock up!
