Koda Bows?

Anyone with experience with these bows, made in PA, backed by Ruger? They are at the show this week.

Never owned one, but I have always heard good things about them. If I was to get one I would look at the Zulu Scout.

Re: Koda Bows?

I have shot them several times. If one is into recurves, they are certainly ones to consider. USA made right here in Pennsylvania. Great trigger. As quiet as a recurve can be. I think they are quieter than Excaliburs. Adjustable length buttstock is a nice feature.

I would look at their new Bravo Zulu Scout model which is narrower and shorter than their original line. It uses much less limb poundage than the Excalibur Matrix and Micro series.

I support all hunters, regardless of weapon or technique!

I shot the Zulu Scout, a very nice bow but a little tough on me to cock. Excalibur micro - forget it (cocking)!

Re: Koda Bows?

I know what you are saying about the Micro. I would need a longer pull rope if I were to use it for long. The way it comes set up, it finishes cocking while I am still bent over. It kills my lower back when it latches and lets off. I have used a longer rope and it's much more comfortable. Koda are a very good crossbow and should provide many years of trouble free service.

Re: Koda Bows?

The Koda bow (Zulu Scout) is a 200 lb draw weight, which also I have ruled out. It's a great bow, my friend bought one at the recent outdoor show, but he is 5 years younger than me. And their other bow is not enough improvement over my present 6 PT Flex. Thinking more along the lines of the CamX or the 10 PT Shadow.

The Ten Point Shadow UL is an excellent choice. I hunted with one last year and loved it. Worthy of a look for certain.
