KodaBow Cam Following Trigger System (CFT™) delivers smooth trigger pull at 3.5 lbs with a solid break for improved accuracy. Internal dry fire and safety mechanisms integrated with CFT.
Military style AR-15 Adjustable Stock with AR-15 compatible rear pistol grip.
Kodabow crossbows do not fire without an arrow on the rail depressing the dry fire mechanism. Anti-dry fire indicator lever visually shows mechanism activation.
Revolutionary "keyed" Riser to Rail interface ensures perfect and consistent rail to riser alignment. Integrated vibration string dampening pods lower sound at firing.
Kodabow crossbows are built on a common core platform that weighs 8.3 lbs including basic grip, scope rail and stock components. All of our crossbow models weigh the same and have the same geometry. The bow spans 34" in width and is 27" when cocked. The length is 34" to 38" because of the adjustable stock. We engineer each limb set per its weight class. That means the Kodabow 185 lb limbs are made slightly different than the 200 lb limbs. (The other way to do it is to make one set of limbs and pull them back further and further to get higher draw weights. We don't like that idea.)
Overall weight is a funny thing when it comes to crossbows. Because our crossbow has an exact "midpoint balance", most shooters find the Kodabow very easy to handle. View the short video on the EL-2 sling (see videos section of our homepage) if weight is a concern. With the EL-2 sling, you can still hunt and stalk all day long with a cocked and loaded Kodabow and be instantly ready to go. With the full length rail underneath the crossbow, you can also attach an accessory bipod, put on your ghillie suit, and go to a prone position on the ground if circumstances dictate.
We are frequently asked "what model would be best for me?"
Our answer is that most shooters should begin their search with a Koda-Express 185 or a Bravo Zulu 200. These are very stout crossbows and will take any game animal in North America but offer a great combination of lower noise, high speed, extended string life, and ease of loading . These are the most popular Kodabow models. The 225 Big Rhino is the beast of the lineup and offers slightly faster speeds with increased cocking effort but at 40 yards, performance is similar to the lighter weight models.
All crossbows require an optical sighting system. The crossbows are built around a unique recurve limb design that delivers energy with a short 14" power stroke making the crossbow easier to cock. One of the most remarkable features of the bow is the low noise signature when shooting. The crossbow is exceptionally quiet. All models include the patented CFT™ Trigger (Cam Following Trigger), an integrated SRT™ (Solid Rail Technology) Modular Core which is lightweight, noise reduced and a convenient way to customize and add accessories. All models have our unique limb technology which integrates new applications of physics to store and release energy called Dynamic Flex Energy Storage (DFES™) --- this is our proprietary dual limb configuration.
Here is what you need to know about how the current Kodabow models are defined and how they can be purchased:
Kodabow Models are defined by limb draw weight. Crossbows are offered in 125 lb, 155 lb, 185 lb, 200 lb and 225 lb models as follows:
Within each Model group, up to 2 variations of optics are possible or you can purchase a bare bow without optics. We use 3x32 scopes and the standard is a simple black "reticle" scope with 6 aiming points to the same scope with upgraded illumination features (red and green). In 2013, we will supply Match Mount Scope Rings with our scopes at no extra charge.
The Kodabow SuperPak includes:
The Super Pak is available when purchasing a crossbow and represents an exceptional value.
You should note that every Kodabow Crossbow already comes with required Allen wrenches, a Destringing Aid (which allows you to change your string in the field) and a Rope Cocking Aid as standard items so they are not included in the Super Pak. You do not need to purchase these separately. These items come with every Kodabow. The SuperPak is an exceptional value and is available at the time of crossbow purchase. Kodabow is built around hunting performance. Each crossbow, when outfitted with an accessory package, works as a system. Upon delivery, your crossbow package and hunting scope will be close to 100% zeroed in. The crossbow will require final adjustments and final sighting in, study of the Instruction Manual, and overall familiarization before heading to the field.
The components and accessories are durable. Hopefully, you will not feel the need to replace any single component after initial use because it doesn't meet expectations. It is pretty simple. A scope shouldn't fog up in a rainstorm. A sling should serve the intended purpose. Kodabow does not put cheaper price point accessories in "packages". This is more expensive in the long run when the hunter needs to replace a substandard item downstream. We strive to use all components and accessories that are MADE IN THE USA1 and have successfully accomplished that mission. This is more costly, but our components are not "cheap imports". The difference is higher quality with more conforming materials and less variance.
1 Some optics and grips are from international sources because of specific performance features. Optics are Asian sourced and some grips are manufacturerd in Israel. All other Kodabow components are Made in the USA with well over 90% of the components made right in Pennsylvania.
