This illuminated version of the 3x32 scope offers both red and green illumination at 5 different brightness levels. It is 3x (3 power magnification) and has glass etched reticles which are durable and very visible. The target rings allow for 5 different range references typically for 20, 30, 40, 50 and 60 yard distances. This scope has illumination which some hunters find desirable to aid in target acquisition. In the event of battery failure, the glass etched reticles continue to work without illumination and are easy to pick up in low light conditions. The scope uses Hawke's Ballistic Reticle Calculator (BRC) which is available online and provides enough technical information for the most avid hunter. We find the scope easy to adjust and like the generous 4" eye relief. Length 8.5" Weight 11.0 oz.

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.
