Barnett Vortex Compound Bow Package for Youth
Very Happy with Purchase
My 13 yr old daughter wanted a bow for her birthday and after extensive research, this bow kept popping to the top of the list. Admittedly, I have no prior bow experience so I can't tell you what a good bow is. I do know quality and this bow has it. It is definitely no toy. We made a trip to the local Bass Pro Shop and recieved extraordinary customer service. Clark (your the man!) completely set up the bow for my daughter and she shot it for the first time in the BPS range. She loves it and my son now wants a bow too. So far, so good. The bow works as advertised. I'm amazed at the adjustabilty. It was definitely the better choice over a recurve. IMO. My only complaint would be that the arrows seem a bit flimsy.

Bow is good but.....
The bow itself is good and when you figure out how to adjust it the bow is better. The sights are fairly good but the rest not so must. The is stabilized by gravity and for a new shooter falls off too easy. The arrows are pure junk. First shot on all three and the points all came off. The kit/carry case is a nice idea but not really necessary. I would buy a whisker bisquit and some good arrows and then shoot the bow. Also I thought the kit would have an arm guard (I don't know why I thought that) but it doesn't so get one if you buy this setup.

Truth is right out of the package my youngest couldn't draw back the string, leading to a very disappointed little boy, however, after some time with the instructions and a couple adjustments we were throwin' arrows and not only throwin but hitting the target. This bow has alot of range as far as draw weight given the many cams and other adjustments and there's no reason I can see that would keep this bow from a hunting bow with proper arrows and sights
. The arrows that came with the unit didn't last long so I'd suggest getting "less fragile" ones and an archery target. We also upgraded to a whisker biscuit and a trigger release both of which helped tighten grouping. Quality seems fine as well as durabilty but it's only been a couple weeks.

Nice beginner bow
We bought this for my wife to start out with and it has been great. So far she loves it. It was easy to adjust and get fit for her. Some of the accessories are not the top of the line but they will get the job done and you can always upgrade along the way. I would recommend it to anyone needing a good starter bow for someone. For the price of the whole setup I don't see how you can go wrong.
