Accuracy and the Kodabow Experience

"There is no greater feeling than shooting a projectile and watching it perform as intended." - Chuck Matasic, Kodabow

To the left is the cover page of the 2011 Barnes Bullet catalog. The picture depicts a spent .30 caliber X-Bullet perfectly mushroomed that was recovered from a game animal after a 200 yard shot in Africa a few years ago. This actual photo was taken in the African bush --- not in a fancy photo shoot studio. It's the real deal. How would we know?

We were there ..... the hand in this photo belongs to Chuck Matasic, President of Kodabow. Chuck reloaded the cartridge himself. He knows a few things about ballistics and shooting. A Kodabow crossbow will never deliver the game killing power at the longer distances of modern center fire rifles. But at archery hunting ranges, 10 to 50 yards, you can expect precision and superb crossbow performance from Kodabow everytime. Kodabow is an archery shooting platform that is comparable to a fine firearm at an exceptional price. Chuck would know. He knows how to build rifles and firearms and it carries over to Kodabow. He was shooting competitively when he was 11 years old. In the military, he qualified as "Expert" in Rifle and Pistol. He is a shooter. According to Chuck, "Kodabow crossbows are built to hunt and kill game animals in a reliable manner - they are the total opposite of so many products manufactured today which are heavy on marketing and light on quality."

We are shooters and hunters. The Kodabow people shoot everything .... from traditional recurve bows to flintlocks. The team just finished shooting 2,000 arrows with consumers at the 9 day Eastern Outdoor Sports Show in Harrisburg, PA. Amazing when you think about it. You just don't see other companies stepping out and doing that level of intense shooting. Everyone likes to shoot at Kodabow and all the experience shows up in a Kodabow crossbow. Here is a quote from a 3rd party reviewer of Kodabow that was recently published.

"I was very surprised when I shot this bow. It was as quiet as most compound crossbows, which means a heck of a lot quieter than any other recurve limb bow. It was well balanced especially compared to other recurve
limb style crossbows, reasonably light weight and a pleasure to shoot. It was so accurate that I was able to pick dime size spots on a target and consistently hit right on." -- Tony Warden

We will add that Kodabow doesn't know the gentleman that wrote the piece. We did post the review in its entirety on our Kodabow Facebook site and we think he got right.

Kodabow hears this type of statement often from Kodabow shooters -- but it never gets old. Some companies pay a writer to do this type of review (big surprise) - but Kodabow doesn't do that - not the style. The preference is to let the Kodabow crossbow do the talking. If you ever see Chuck, say "Hello" and shake his weather beaten hand..... ask him if he has been out shooting.
