You don't need a Big Rhino to shoot big animals but if you want a bow at the upper end of our production range, this is the Big Boy. It's a hunting crossbow, 225 lb draw weight and the 3x32 illuminated scope is included. While you might see some bows being sold that are higher in draw weight, we think any crossbow with a higher draw weight is impractical for most folks. This bow provides flat trajectories and high Kinetic Energy levels. You don't need to play in the NFL to shoot the Big Rhino but if you are only 130 lbs soaking wet and have never done a pull up in your life, the Big Rhino probably isn't for you. Includes an upgraded 3x32 scope with multiple aiming points. Illuminated red/green glass etched reticles provide hollow circles with a 2" kill zone at the corresponding distance and rheostat adjustment to 5 brightness settings. Without illumination, standard black line reticles are visible. Key benefits include flatter ballistic profiles, bright optical image and faster arrow speeds. Modular core platform provides additional accessory mounting positions. Picture may not reflect minor configuration changes that occur from time to time. Requires more arm strength during the cocking process than lighter weight bows. * 14" power stroke * 350 fps @ 350 gr arrow * Automatic Safety and Anti-Dry Fire System Patented Kodabow trigger system (CFT), Solid Rail Technology (SRT) with hardcoated finish, Dual Limbs with Dynamic Flex Energy Storage (DFES), Machined Riser and adjustable military style stock.

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.
