Top Seller! A Popular Choice! Candidly, this is the bow that many hunters should purchase. It is very manageable to cock and shoot. (In terms of speed, we remember killing a 500 lb waterbuck in Africa at 32 yards with a bow that shot the same weight arrow 20% slower than the Koda-Express ...... and every year, hunters kill huge bears with this model.) The Koda-Express hunting crossbow in 185 lb draw weight is an exceptional choice with an attractive combination of speed, weight and ease of use. Easier to cock than heavier weight bows but still delivering plenty of energy down range. Includes an illuminated 3x32 scope with 6 aiming points. Red/Green glass etched reticles provide hollow circles with a 2" kill zone at the corresponding distance and rheostat adjustment to 5 brightness settings. When illumination is turned off, standard black reticles are visible. Along with the Bravo Zulu, this is the bow we most often choose for the whitetail woods. The Koda-Express when matched with our Magnum .338 arrows with 100 grain heads will tend to shoot the scope crosshairs out to 50 yards. when the 20 yard aim point is sighted in 3/4" high. The result will be right on target at the 30, 40 and 50 yard increments. The Koda-Express is powerful enough for all North American game and has shown the ability to deliver 100% pass through penetration on large game animals. The 185 lb Koda-Express is a great choice especially for hunters in the age 50 to 80 age group and is one of our most popular crossbows. If the Koda-Express was visualized as a rifle cartridge, it would be a .308 Winchester. Plenty of power. If you want a crossbow with plenty of speed but still is easy to cock, this is the choice.

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.
