Barnett Vortex Lite Compound Bow Package for Youth
I like it so far. It works.
This bow was purchased as a Christmas gift for my 8Year Old Grandson. I added a Peep sight, tru-nock and purchased a small release. It really could use a small wisker biscuit to contain the arrow because the tip weight is quite light.. Three additional arrows were purchased as the originals didn't hold up well to the trial and setup shots. I lost one and the tips came off of the others, when I pulled them from the Block Target. I have no complaint about the arrows they are fine for set-up and sighting in. Weight of pull is easy to adjust and I haven't yet tried to change a cam for His pull length. That will be done after I give it at Christmas.

Great starter Bow for a child!
This is a Very good bow For a Starter bow for a Child.... I wasn't to fond of the Barnett Line of bow's Because of the adult bow's not being the best of quality but this Starter Bow is a Great children's bow.. I was going to get my son the BowTech child's starter bow but i tried this bow and i have to say it is a great bow only downfall was the arrow's it came with they are cheap and break easy.. and also i had to take the Cam off of it and re-adjust it because it wasn't put on the bow the right way and was tilted alot.. but all in all is a great bow... surprised me with the speed this little bow has and it has some power it does stick inside my 3-D target without any problem...

this bow is a waste of money !! i bought this one for my daughter for christmas , she has only shot if 50 - 60 times , we were shooting and the upper limb broke off and slapped her in the face giving her a black eye. to me this is a poorely built bow. DONT BUY IT !! it could have easily put out her eye !!!!

I bought this for my 10 year old son for Christmas. It seemed great until we went to to his first 4- H Archery shoot. Epic Fail. It was way too small for him and some of the stabilizers were glued on wrong. They wouldn't even let him shoot the arrows that came with it because they were made so poorly. I was told to return it and get something bigger and of higher quality. This is a great toy for backyard shooting but that is about it. It's size is good for 5-8 year olds.
