30% BRIGHTER - Lumenoks for Kodabow Magnum .338 Arrows --- these fit the arrows that we recommend for Kodabow. (.301" inside diameter carbon bolts.) The Lumenok is activated by the force applied to it at the firing of the arrow. The shooter is able to follow the path of his arrow to his target. In the case of an errant shot, the lighted nock will make finding your arrow much easier, saving time and the cost of the arrow. (All this is accurate unless you hit a rock or solid object --- in that case, kiss your Lumenok, arrow and broadhead goodbye because they will be destroyed.) The Lumenok is visible for great distances in the dark. It can remain lit for 40 hours, allowing an archer to return hours after a shot to retrieve an arrow. The Lumenok is turned off by pressing the Lumenok firmly with your thumb until the LED light extinguishes. They ship in a 3 pack and perform the same as the aluminum rear nock that they replace. (Yes - we tested them.) If you want Lumenoks, ensure you tell us TO NOT CEMENT your rear nocks in place on your arrow order. We energize and use these nocks one at a time on our #1 arrow and find them most useful for evening hunts or when we decide we want to video our shot for later playback. They also have a "cool factor" when shooting so you will be able to impress your friends.

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.
