Really a target type bow first....or a great recreational setup .....or closer range hunting to medium size game ---- it's a lighter weight crossbow that can be hand cocked without using a manual cocking rope aid where competition rules require this method in lieu of a manual cocking rope. While primarily a recreational and target crossbow, these bows can be effective hunting tools at closer ranges and meet the minimum hunting crossbow requirements in most jurisdictions. Then again, if you are thinking world chaos is just around the corner, these lighter weight bows would make a terrific survival tool for both small and medium size game while being a little easier on arrows due to lower energy. Choose a 125 lb, 155 lb, or 165 lb draw weight, check availability at Kodabow, add a 3x32 illuminated scope that works well with the legendary geometry of all Kodabow crossbows and you are in business. These models are popular among target shooters and deliver exceptional accuracy. Picture may not reflect minor configuration changes that occur from time to time. Limited quantities and color options. Check with Kodabow for availability on this model.

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 recurve 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
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 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.
