The Kahuna is a range of bats made by Kookaburra Sport
and is the company's sole premier bat line. The Kahuna Icon faced controversy in early 2006 when there was a dispute over whether the graphite backing of the bat would increase its performance to an unfair level, as compared to even other bats such as the Kookaburra Beast, to which it is often compared. This led to the Marylebone Cricket Club
, the copyright holder to the laws of cricket ruling the bat ineligible for use in international test match
.It's use is still permitted in all other forms of cricket, making it a bat which dominates the vast majority of others. It is no doubt the paramount bat in the Kookaburra Range.
The Kahuna is similar in its characteristics to the Kookaburra Beast
. However, the Kahuna still features being made of the highest grade of English willow
, has a twelve-piece Sarawak cane handle, an octopus grip
and weighs between 2lb 7oz and 3lb 4oz. It's pick-up is relatively superior to other Kookaburra range bats, and provides the force required to dwarf even the largest boundaries, a characteristic which is distinctive to the Kahuna.
