Saw one today at Wal Mart as well...
Cheap backup bow?
Not just a wal mart bow we sold them at the shop I worked at. The bow is a PITA to work on but it's a great alternative when parents come in and want a bow for there 8 year old son to see if he likes archery but don't want to drop 300-450 dollars on a craze or ruckus and find out the kid wants nothing to do with the thing in six months. The accesories are junk but I have had people come back in and set the bow up with a whisker biscuit and a three pin tru glo sight with a tube peep. It's really all in what you make of it... I mean some people still shoot just a stick and string lol
if you get good accessories do you think the bow would be worth the 200$ i just seen it at my walmart to. was wondering the exact same thing and if the ibo speed is good at all?
I'd rather buy a used bow from the classifieds here than a new bow from Walmart.

I saw it at my Wallmart, and from what I saw the Threshold is built far better then this for the same price.
Its a 2nd rate bow. About half way from a Bear Brave and a real bow. The cams use mods made out of plastic and the screws strip easy if you are not carefull. The rest is a total piece of garbage and needs to be replaced. The sight is usable but not the greatest. Overall its a Barnett built in China that should tell you all you need to know. JMO
Accessories stink, modules are plastic, screws are cheap and strip easily (star bit works better than allen), strings aren't good at all, but for $170 you can't expect that much from them. I set them up for kids a lot where I work if the parents don't want to spring for the Apprentice or Infinite Edge. One of the kids last year brought me a picture of them and the deer they killed with it from this last season. He was super pumped about it so if that's what they can get, let them have their fun. I wouldn't get one for my kid but if that's the range you need to be in, they will do the job and the kids have fun.

I would be afraid to shoot that thing.
imo buy a young dude the diamonde infinite edge that he can shoot now and also grow into. if he doesn't like it sell it and you'll still come out better than you would reselling this bow.
I seen it at walmart today also.. I picked it up and it felt good for a cheap bow. Walmart has a 30day return policy so you could try it out and just return it. Looks compact and maybe it will hit 280+fps.. who knows maybe 300 buried.
I picked up a Diamond Razor Edge w 30-60# limbs for 200 to my doir on the classifieds. I think I would take it as a backup over tge wallyworld special.
Since you ask , I think Wall Mart sucks , and shopping there destroys our economy ,and they treat their employes like cattle , thats my thoughts, Since you ask
i bought 1 love it im not a rich person so it will do for me i got a red head but i love vortex
Wally world - shopping there does not help
this bow can be bought in cabelas as well
the shop i help out at have sold a 15 of these, as said above, parts are cheap, and for $100 more they could go to a bear apprentice 2 but some people dont want to spend that on something that the kid may only have a passing intrest in.
they accually shoot not that bad at the higher weights
I sell the vortex jr in my shop they are great bows for kids who's parents don't want to spend a lot of money at first the rest and arrows are junk but the bow is not bad at all for what you pay for it I have never tried one of the regular vortex bows in he 45 to 60 lbs they might not hold up as good at higher poundage and longer draw length but the jr does real well IMO they are better than the infinite edge for a child
My grandson has a Vortex and loves it. He shoots 3" groups at 20 yards and is becoming a great little archer. But this sport requires practice, practice and more practice to become consistant enough to hunt responsibly. These days with Ipads, PS4s, etc., it pays to test the waters with kids to see if they'll stick with something that requires this level of discipline before going all out. Especially with something like archery that can get really expensive in a hurry! Once he is up to 40+lbs of draw weight (and after one of his excellent report cards), he may find an Ignite or Infinite Edge has mysteriously appeared in his closet during one of Papa's visits.
I got one a few years back basically as a starter bow to see if I liked it. Immediately replaced sight, rest, string, and everything. Put on a truglo sight and wb rest, and new custom string. Added Limbsaver stabilizer and limb silencers as well as string leeches. All together about 250$. I didn't really think I would ever hunt with it but this past year I realized how accurate I was when I outshot everyone in the local archery shop! That gave me the confidence in my cheap rig and the guys in the shop said go for it. Haven't killed a deer yet, shot at one and it ducked the string but killed a few groundhogs with it. Straight through and dropped them. Same with some squirrels and rabbits.
