Featuring the silent ACUdraw PRO cocking device, the reverse-draw Vortec RDX is perfectly balanced, leading to more accurate off-hand shooting and reduced fatigue while holding steady on a target. Thanks to a super light draw weight, the Vortec RDX is easy to draw and offers a super smooth, vibration-free shot. The Vortec RDX is sold in a ready-to-hunt package that includes an Integrated String Stop System to reduce noise and vibration.

Package Includes:

  • Optics: Horton 4x32 Scope
  • Quiver: 3-Arrow Instant Detech Quiver
  • Cocking Device: ACUdraw PRO
  • Arrows: Three Horton carbon arrows
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Compact Crossbow I bought the Horton Vortec RDX because of the reverse draw. The crossbow works great in climbing stands that face the tree. With the riser being in the middle of the bow it gives more room for the limbs to extend without fear of them hitting the tree or stand when deployed. The Vortec is very accurate with being able to hit a silver dollar at 50 yards and a fear of doing a Robin Hood by shooting twice that could ruin the first arrow. The life time warranty is a great added bonus that shows me the commitment they have to the quality of the Vortec as well as the commitment to the Customer.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love the compact design This is my 2nd crossbow and I love it. It's compact design is great for hunting from a treestand. The reverse limbs puts the weight in the center of bow instead of on the front end like traditional crossbows. This allows for a steady hold and better off hand shooting. This is a quality crossbow with a great warranty.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I like it! I hunt in a ground blind and space is in short supply. This bow’s design is great in tight places! Light in the hand and easy to maneuver! I wouldn’t have been able to make the shot on my 7 point without it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from First crossbow My wife bought me the Vortec RDX for Christmas because of elbow surgery earlier in the year which forced me to shelve my compound bow. Although this is my first crossbow I can’t see how it can get much better than this. After 10 minutes of setting up a target and a couple turns to the left on the scope I was hitting the bull at 30 yards. It’s very comfortable to hold and with my shooting stick under the front I’m shooting 1 inch groups at 40. I couldn’t ask for more for a first crossbow.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 1st Crossbow I bought the Vortec RDX at the beginning of last season due to an arm injury that forced me to shelve my compound now. I had a great season, 1 buck and 1 doe. Both were right at 20 yards and clean pass thru shots I did not have to track either as they dropped within sight. This Xbow is incredibly accurate and quiet. The doe came in with another doe. On the shot, the second doe stood still and stayed in front of me for 2-3 minutes. I can’t wait to get back in the stand this year and do it all over again. Thank you Ten Point Sorry I don’t have any picture to post

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love my Horton reverse limbs! The best I've ever owned!! The ease and balance is wonderful. I was and outfitter and guide in Idaho over 25 years. This is my second Horton reverse limb. I'm very glad tenpoint took over Horton, both great bows. If you're looking for a great Crossbow company, you've found it ! The compacted package is great in the blind or in the field. I love the way the reverse limb always protects the string carrying or in the brush. Picture form the old Horton and new ones to come.. : )) Thanks for such a great product. Sandy Podsaid Idaho

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love it Love everything about this xbow way better than my excalibur 350 in just about every way. This bow is easy to cock, little noise and almost no vibrations for a crossbow and its super accurate. Ten Point did great.

Does scope have multiple reticle lines for various distances? If so are they calibrated for this xbow specifically. Also, what knocks are required? Will my v- notched bolts work with this xbow?

Asked by: GRS60
The scope has multiple horizontal reticle lines that represent 20, 30, 40, and 50-yards. The scope is calibrated to be dead-on for arrows shot at 330 feet per second. If you shoot the 400-grain arrows that come with it, you will be shooting approximately 340 feet per second, which is close enough to 330 feet per second that the horizontal reticles should be true to the distances they represent. You cannot use moon nocks or capture nocks out of this crossbow. You must use the Omni-Nock or the Alpha-Nock.

This comes with the Horton bolts, is it recommended to stay with those at 400 grains or move to the pro elite at 442grains? How does that effect the speed, kinetic energy?

Asked by: Jack A
The Vortec RDX will shoot the 400-grain arrow approximately 340 feet-per-second and carries with it 103 foot-pounds of kinetic energy. If shooting the 440-grain Carbon Pro Elite arrow, the speed will be approximately 325 feet-per-second and the arrow will carry 104 foot-pounds.

Since this bow is 135 pound draw weight instead of the more traditional 165 pounds or more will this affect penetration and distance that the bow can shoot? I'm curious because sometimes im presented 50 to 55 yard shots I'm very comfortable at these range

Asked by: Brandon24
There are a few aspects of a crossbow's design that determine how fast the crossbow will shoot. Draw weight and power stroke length are two of these factors. The reason the Vortec RDX has a 135 lb draw weight is that the reverse-draw (RDX) design of this crossbow allows for a longer power stroke. The longer the power stroke, the greater the distance the arrow is accelerated down the flight rail. Therefore, an RDX crossbow can have a lower draw weight but still shoot faster speeds as compared to a forward draw crossbow with the same draw weight. The Vortec RDX will shoot with enough speed and power to harvest a white-tailed deer at 50 yards. In fact, if you make a broadside shot through the killzone, you will likely have a total pass-through.

What is the recommended bolt grain and fixed blade grain weight?

Asked by: Jack A
This crossbow can shoot arrows that are as light as 370-grains total arrow weight (including broadhead). For hunting purposes, we recommend using a heavier arrow that will carry a greater amount of kinetic energy, which means greater penetration power. For hunting, use at least a 400-grain minimum finished arrow weight (including a 100-grain broadhead).

What is the recommended length of a bolt 20 or 22" ?

Asked by: lowman57

Does this meet NY State 17” minimum limb width? Thank you again in advance! Cheers

Asked by: John0311
Unfortunately, the Vortec RDX is not legal archery equipment in the state of New York at this time. However, there are proposed changes to the crossbow laws which, if passed, will allow for the use of this crossbow.
