Koda-BRO Multi-Fiber Optic Sight: This solid aluminum sight uses multi-fiber optics on the front sight in combination with a rear peep sight. It is ideal for hunters who prefer a more traditional sight with high durability and simplicity and is also a wise choice in areas that prohibit magnification sights on hunting crossbows. This sight comes in two models. This model does not include the rangefinder (back to belly bracket). It is a simple, clutter free sight. The product photograph includes the rangefinder bracket which is NOT supplied when ordering this model. Kodabow developed this sight with Bad River Outdoors, a Michigan company, and the mounting system is customized for Kodabow crossbows. The sighting system has 4 aiming points marked 30, 40, 50 and 60 yards and depending on arrow selection and bow weight, the yardages will likely conform to actual range results using a Kodabow 200 lb. Bravo Zulu. After testing, we were astounded by the accuracy and Bad River Outdoors ran parallel testing and came back with the same results. So shooting a 2" group at 60 yards will be is impressive but not surprising. Target acquisition is quick and the geometry of front sight to rear sight in combination with the size of the rear peep sight is perfect. We like this sight .....and we liked it even more after seeing it perform in low light conditions.

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.
