Barnett Vortex Compound Bow Package for Youth
A nice bow
It's a nice bow, but it benefits greatly with the addition of a Whisker Bisquit since the arrows aren't stable on the rest. The arrows on the other hand are terrible. They are so thin that they bend when impacting soft ground at an angle upon misses to the target at distances of ten yards.. Furthermore, the inserts were all loose and the fletching was not properly installed. It's far too nice a bow to match with those junky arrows. It would be to Barnet's benefit to include quality arrows in the kit. Overall, I am quite satisfied with this bow and I think it will serve my granddaughter well for quite a few years.

Like the other reviews the bow is good. do yourself a favor and get some carbon arrows. at 24# when arrow hit the top of a hurricane bag at 15 yards the arrow deflected and bent. the sight and arrow rest are in need of a upgrade also. I do like the ease of adjustments but dang the arrows had me baffled.

This bow is okay as a starter bow for child or adult. Inexpensive and light. But all accessories are junk (poorly made). If you shoot on occasion this is the bow for you, but if your an adamant shooter pick up the baer apprentice bow more everything! (more power, better accessories and solid)
