Yeah from looking at photos it does seems he uses Kook made bats. They look a bit more of a fuller shape than the off-the-shelf Kahuna though.

This one is a pretty standard SH length blade.

Does the spine run into the toe? It does on the std Kahuna doesn't it? Nice looking bat regardless.

Heres the shape for the 1-2 that asked, weight of this one is a shade over 27 with stickers and a regular grip.

This is huge for 2-7!

How did you get this?

No, Jos' bats seem to have more of a duckbill shape

Had a damaged toe, presumably why Jos Gave it away. Someone who bought it at a charity auction was flogging it on. Figured it was repairable so got Tom Line to graft a corner on it and refurbed it.

Wont get too carried away but would say its above average.

It is huge for the weight.

Very surprising as I've always thought his bats must be exceptional given the distance of some of his hits (even when slightly mistimed but obviously taking no credit away from his batting talent).

I'd wager you could give him 'rubbish' bats that score no runs in the hands of most forum members and he'd find a way to hit massive sixes

Oh I have no doubts about this! But I always imagined him to have some cracking bits of willow.

Aside from having more hand eye coordination in his little finger than we have as a forum combined, I imagine years of training, specialised fitness work and having access to some of the best coaches in the world also help.

Their fitness level, timing, and hand eye coordination is just at another planet.

Anyone has any intel on the specialized fitness work Roy and Buttler do?

I remember something in the Telegraph (I think) about Buttler's training, it seemed more focused on his wicket keeping from what I recall. No doubt it is behind a paywall on their website somewhere.

I'd be pretty surprised to be honest if it was particularly batting specialised. Strength wise probably something built around variations of bench/squat/deadlift with some dynamic and power movements. Most likely in the gym about 3 days a week, lots of exercises like medicine ball throws and things with resistance bands, not training particularly heavy and lots of rehab on any niggling injuries.
