Chuck Matasic, founder and CEO of Kodabow

Kodabow crossbows are built in Pennsylvania using state of the art manufacturing processes and materials.

Chuck Matasic started this company 10 years ago. The philosophy was to avoid the traps and shortcuts that ultimately cheapen many products. Everything the company would do would be well done and every feature on the crossbow would have a reason driving the development. The objective was to build a finely finished and highly durable sporting arm with solid performance characteristics and high accuracy. You can immediately feel the difference when you pick up a Kodabow crossbow. You will be convinced when you pull the trigger. The difference is technology and simply doing things right.

High Expectations for a Crossbow

We make each individual part stronger and with more precision that you might ever expect and well beyond what you may ever need. We shoot every crossbow before it heads out the door. A crossbow is a sum of its parts and the failure of any part or design element can quickly become a disaster in the field. As hunters, we know the importance of the “experience”. We also know that you would not be considering Kodabow unless you felt the same way. You have high expectations and so do we.

Crossbows Made in the USA

The world is changing around us. “Made in the USA” is heard less frequently than it should be. We have seen crossbow companies come and go. Big names. A few years ago, Kodabow attracted the attention of large companies like Sturm Ruger, a firearms maker. Ruger took an ownership position in the company. In 2018, we succeeded in executing a transaction that returned ownership back to the original founders. The company also experimented with large scale distribution through “internet retailers” and “big box retail” and enjoyed some success with these channels but found that a DIRECT CUSTOMER RELATIONSHIP delivered more value to our customers and to our company. We spend our dollars on product quality instead of huge advertising budgets. Consequently, our sales team is the Kodabow owner group who continually refer our products to their friends, family and hunting partners. Frequently, very accomplished hunters tell us that their Kodabow Crossbow is the best shooting system in their arsenal of guns and bows. (We are always impressed but never surprised.) Technology can create new opportunities as well new challenges in a disorienting manner. As a new hunter or as a long time hunter, it is likely that you currently or will eventually personally define yourself to some degree by your passion for this sport. Time in the field often provides the moments to reflect and sort through life’s priorities and future plans. It is unusual to be a hunter and not feel strongly about ethics, fair chase, political positions and even the overall direction of our country as it relates to your sport. In this changing world, you may find that the outdoors and your hunting experiences are cornerstones that serve you well through youth to older age. It is timeless to revisit the woods where you hunted years or decades earlier. If you choose to make this journey with good equipment, it is a wise decision… and Kodabow will be there for you. Our crossbows are simple and straightforward. They are highly capable products and if you are a hunter, we expect that Kodabow crossbows will serve you well.

Exceptionally Skilled Crossbow Makers

In our collective experience manufacturing base, we partners who have built components that meet unique service requirements for the space program, tactical military weapons and commercial shooting sports products. Some of us have hunted nearly 50 years with everything from primitive hunting tools to some of the most advanced shooting systems. These perspectives help us appreciate the art and magic of the hunting experience and drive us to make a great crossbow without compromise.
