Made to Joe Root’s exact specifications in terms of profile, it has a mid-middle and an exaggerated hump in the sweet spot putting all the power in the centre of the bat. The slight concaving gives the bat an exceptional balance. The pick-up and feel of the DKP JR-655 is second to none and the performance matches that giving what is truly a test grade bat.
With a high spine and thick edges, the JR-655 has a very wide sweet spot that will suit stylish players. The DKP JR-655 works beautifully for players who love to pull and cut the ball, which comes from its ability to feel as though the bat weighs less than it is.
Every angle is precisely shaped and smoothed through our unique sanding so the bat has a stunning glow. This is more sculpture than carpentry from the master bat maker at DKP. With stunning blue and white decals, stand out from the rest with something that is handmade and crafted in England.
Made from the very best Grade 1+ Players or Grade 1 English Willow, using lightweight clefts, each bat is handmade from start to finish with every bat being triple pressed to get the best performance.

Our DKP JR-655 bats are offered in two grades as described below:
Players Grade 1+ will be the best pieces of wood we have in our workshop and would be the same quality that the professional cricketer would utilise. For example, tight grain or predominantly sap wood which is all white wood, no blemishes and exceptional performance as used by international players. This grade is very rare and is limited in availability.
Grade 1 English Willow cricket bats will have 7 or more Grains, which will have a clear white face and no blemishes on the face of the blade or with a small strip of heartwood. Heartwood is from the centre of the tree and is generally preferred by pro players.
Each DKP Cricket bat will come pre-knocked in with a DKP Pro-Edge scuff sheet free of charge.
