Kookaburra spikes
« on: September 07, 2016, 08:03:12 AM »

How do kookaburra spikes match up, in size, against asics or NB? Bigger, smaller?

Should I be worried this is in helmets?

Are you contemplating attacking a batsmen with said spikes??

No idea but avoid them, two mates at my club bought a pair and they didn't last half a season before the stitching at the front was gone!

Width is ok but but they are nearly a size shorter.

I bought a pair of Kooka spikes when i was in india a few years ago with a whole stack of SG gear (still only using the thigh pad combo... after completely relaxing the fabric covering).

I swapped them out for New Balance 4030's (Blue version) after only 1/2 a season. I felt i didn't get very good stability running between the wickets, more so the turning in and out of the crease than straight line running.

That said, i did take the spikes out and have been using them for indoor nets every week since....
