Barnet Vortex Banner Barnett Vortex Youth Compound Bow Package
Over 20# of Adjustment
We love it when people do smart things. Get this! Instead of giving us the usual skimpy 10# draw weight adjustment range on this bow, Barnett built the new Vortex Youth Compound Bow with over 20 pounds of draw weight adjustment. With Draw Length adjustable from 21-26" This bow will keep your teen shooter busy for years!

The Vortex Youth Compound Bow Package, from Barnett, represents everything you need in a youth bow and nothing you don't. Fully adjustable through a young shooter's cycle of growth, the Vortex is built to be the only bow you need before moving up to an adult compound bow. Designed for shooters from about 4'4" to 5'6", the Vortex covers the all important zone of growth where real shooting skills are going to be picked up.

Kids are rough on their gear. Theres just no other way to say it. As humans, we spend our childhood exploring possibilities, filling our minds with all the information needed to make good decisions later in life. Some of that exploration inevitably involves learning how to destroy an anvil with a rubber mallet.

Barnett knows all about dealing with forces that are hard on gear. Comparing the energy spike of a crossbow firing to that of a compound is not much different than comparing a Mike Tyson punch to a 10 year old's. That being said, when Barnett builds a piece of equipment, it is done with the understanding that its going to get used. They've taken their understanding of building solid crossbows and laid it down in a top notch youth compound bow.

If you're looking for a great way to expose a young shooter to the world of archery without breaking the bank. This is the way to go. We've gone ahead and taken a lot of the guess work out too!

We've loaded this great bow up with everything: rest, sight, arrows, stabilizer, bow case, wrist sling, mechanical release and MUCH MORE. But don't expect the box to be full of loose parts and assembly instructions, because this awesome rig comes ready for action the moment you unpack it from the case. Our pro-shop does all the work in-advance. So this awesome bowhunting rig arrives 100% ready to shoot. Scroll down for all the details.

Twin Cam
When it comes to simplicity it doesn't get much better than the Twin Cam system. Tried and true, the Vortex delivers an incredibly smooth draw stroke and outstanding arrow speeds with its highly adjustable and forgiving twin cam system.
Adult Bow Features!
We all remember the days when youth bows meant thin little limbs and a rubber grip. With the Vortex your young shooter won't feel short-changed. This bow is the real McCoy! All the features of an adult compound bow, down-sized for younger shooters.
Includes the bow, the arrows, accessories, and it arrives ready-to-shoot.

When you order your bow package, please select the style and size of peep sight you prefer. You may choose from the popular TRIO-Style peep sight (medium/large) or a TUBE-Style peep (large). Standard install height is 13 cm above the nocking point, but you may choose a HIGH (15 cm) or LOW (11 cm) alignment to accommodate special conditions. See help section below for additional details.
3 Steel Practice Tips

Perfectly matched to the diameter of your arrows, 6 steel screw-in practice points are included and already installed on the arrows with your bow system. Precision machined and weight accurate to +/- 1 grain.  Removes quickly for broadhead installation.  Style may vary.
saunders field points
bow assembly SETUP
Every bow package is hand-assembled at our Pro-Shop by a qualified archery professional. No details are overlooked. The peep sight is served in place, the nock or loop set is installed, the draw length and weight is set to your specifications, all hardware is carefully installed and properly adjusted, and your arrows are custom built to suit your particular bow and settings. The string gets waxed, axles lubricated, and the bow is given a thorough inspection - top to bottom - for any flaws in manufacturing. If the bow and related gear aren't up to standards, they don't leave our shop!
paper tune hole PAPER TESTING/TUNING
We actually test-shoot each bow. Every bow is paper tested by our staff shooters, to ensure that your arrows will fly like a laser beam when launched from your new bow. Adjustments are made as necessary until each arrow tears a clean "bullet-hole", indicating perfectly level and straight arrow flight for the best possible accuracy. We resolve any and all fletching clearance problems and align each arrow nock for a clean zero-contact launch. Be advised that paper-tuning results are only repeatable if you shoot with proper form (no torquing, trigger-jerking, improper grip pressures, etc.).
tight arrow group RANGE TESTING
Each bow is tested at distance to ensure that arrows will group tightly. 3-Arrow groups are shot at 15, 25, & 35 yards and measured by our staff shooters. We use the 25/2 rule. If our staff shooters aren't grouping 3 arrows into a 2" circle at 25 yards with your new bowhunting package, then we retune until the 25/2 rule is met. While variances in individual shooting form makes exact pre-sighting impossible, we test shoot each bow and rough-set your top sight pin for a 20 yard shot. This gets your sight-pins in the "ball-park" so you won't have to start from scratch - possibly sending an arrow into an unforgiving neighbor's yard.
getting started booklet GETTING STARTED
When you receive your new bow system, you will just need to make fine adjustments to the top pin, then finish-up by setting the remaining pins for the distances you prefer. And if you're new to the sport, or not so handy with tools and gadgetry ... don't worry. You'll also receive a copy of our booklet Getting Started with Your Compound Bow which offers detailed instructions on the sighting-in procedure as well as helpful maintenance and safety tips. WE STRONGLY RECOMMEND YOU READ AND UNDERSTAND THIS BOOKLET THOROUGHLY BEFORE YOU BEGIN SHOOTING.
We chronograph each bow to ensure that the actual arrow velocity is within the expected range. You will receive a System Statistics report with your new Ready-to-Hunt™ Bow Package. This report will precisely detail the exact velocity of your arrows, grain weight and length of the arrows, recommended tip weights, the exact bow settings, and dozens of other specs related to your bow system. Keep this sheet for your reference. If you ever need additional arrows or want to make changes and adjustments on your bow, you'll have the original data for reference.
Each fully assembled bowhunting package is delivered - packed tightly in the bow case of your choice. Loose parts, like the release and broadheads, are all safely tucked inside too. Once full, the bow case is boxed and sealed for safe transport. Your bow system is then shipped, via FedEx Ground, to your home or business. A tracking number will be provided to you, so you'll know when to expect delivery. All packages are fully insured and require a signature at the point of delivery.
