I have spent alot of time looking at various bows but even the cheapest of hunting bows tend to cost around $300. This bow costs a little more than half that price when it is fully kitted out. This bow comes with a detachable quiver, a 3 reticle sight, and an arrow rest. The sight isn't fantastic, but it works just fine. I also wasn't thrilled with the arrow rest that it came with. It promptly went in the gawbage and was replaced with a whisker biscuit. The quiver is pretty good, but it only holds 3 arrows. It is a good idea to replace the quiver with a model that holds at least four arrows.
Another great feature that this bow has is that it is very adjustable. Parts of the cams are replacable to adjust the draw legnth. The bowstring can be tigntened on the cams to allow the draw weight to be adjusted up to 45 lbs. Screws can also be adjusted on the bow to reduce the draw weight to around 25 pounds. The bow comes with a draw weight of 41 lbs.

very adjustable
powerful enough to hunt deer with
small enough to fire while sitting
comes with 3 arrows
easy to shoot
very affordable
sight is pretty good
great for young shooters

arrow rest isn't great
quiver isn't the best

I bought this bow for my wife so she would shoot with my daughter (shoots JOAD) and me. My wife is only 4'9" and has never shot before so I wanted her to have a good experience from the start. This bow was the perfect choice. Was able to adust draw to 21" and weight to 20# without a press. Kept the sight as it was adequate for target and 3D beginner. Replaced the rest with a QAP Ultra Rest drop rest. Left the quiver off and bought some Easton 1616's to use in place of the heavy arrows that come with it. She quickly became able to group about 6" at 20 meters and doesn't feel totally outclassed by other shooters. I contacted Barnett because the instructions for the bow were not included in my package. They were very responsive and helpful. The company stands behind their product and I think I made the right choice after considering the Genesis, Nuclear ICE, and others like it. The Vortex is really in a class by itself.

High quality
Highly adjustable draw span
Highly adjustable draw weight
Adequate sight
Great customer support

Possibly adequate rest (never tried it)
3-arrow quiver (never used it)
Arrows (possibly a good compromise but may not fit your usage)

Note: A product this comprehensive is going to have some compromises. Fortunately, they are not in the bow itself and having that good foundation leaves the owner many options to make this a product that will fulfill the mission.

My son (8) wanted a bow for Christmas. I almost bought the cheaper Bear Brave III at Wal-Mart, but decided against it and researched a bit on the web, and went to my local Gander Mountain to look at real bows. (I am not an archer or hunter, so I am not an expert). I saw the Vortex, but it's price was rather high (159 + tax). The clerk there explained how to measure the proper draw length for my kid, so I did and discovered the Brave III was way too small. The Vortex, however is adjustable from 21-27 inches, which gave a lot of room to grow. I set the draw for 23", backed off the tension to about 27 lbs. (which took all of 15 minutes with the included tools and hardware),and we were shooting in the backyard. This is not a toy bow by any stretch, just a bit smaller in the handgrip for smaller hands, and anything you may find for under $100.00 will be little better than a toy and will probably frustrate your kid.

I only have 1 complaint. The 3 aluminum arrows that came with the bow are crap. They are too heavy (at least at the current draw weight) and guaranteed to bend the first time they hit the ground, and they WILL hit the ground. We bought a few lighter carbon arrows at the local archery shop and his shooting has drastically improved, hitting the target at least 2 out of 3 shots with a pretty tight pattern, he is learning quick. These arrows will still break and take a beating, but they don't bend. They will set you back about 4 bucks each though. At $125 including shipping, the Barnett Vortex is the cheapest real bow capable of actually killing something you will find. I recommend it if you want to introduce your kid to archery without breaking the bank.

This is the least expensive, quality youth bow that can be used for hunting. Amazon is the only place selling it for $118 and if someone found it cheaper elsewhere they found the Vortex Lite which is not the same. The sight is below average and the rest is cheap but they are both functional. They can also both be easily replaced for $35.00. The string is made to be able to separate and install a peep site which you will want to do at a pro shop for about $10. We also went with a string loop and release for another $18.00. After getting 6 good carbon arrows cut to length with field tips ($50) we ended up spending about $240 to get it all set up. If you need a target that is another $40.00. The Cam Modules are easy to change and the draw weight is set in a range based on the draw length. You can not set it at 19# at 25". The lowest setting at 25" is 31#. If you have a child that wants to bow hunt and don't know what you are getting into expect to spend close to $300 with this bow to set it up properly. If you skip the string loop, release, upgraded sight and rest you can set it up for under $200. This is a good bow that will grow with a child. It can also be set to draw at 27" (Pro-Shop would have to change string anchor point on cam) to fit someone with a 67.5" wingspan so many small adults can use this bow.
