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 A sweet spot bow - performance, design, and price. I've been deliberating for several seasons the idea to add a compound bow to my deer hunting options. So, when I decided to make a purchase, my priority was to make it the right one. I certainly did just that with the Vortec RDX. For a great price point I get reverse draw width, easy and safe cocking, quality optics, plenty of speed, and indredible accuracy. My new bow hunting range had me expanding shooting lanes at every one of my stands - an amazing bow and superior value. Select this one with confidence.

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 4 out of 5 by from I love the Vortec RDX The bow is great but it’s taken a bit to get used to the reverse draw. Had my previous Horton Legend Team Realtrre 9 years and was really spoiled by its accuracy and dependability. It was more horizontally balanced than the Vortec because of the wider limbs so It doesn’t sit as well on my shooting stick and shooting rail. Maybe if the hand grip was more square it wouldn’t tend to roll to its side while resting on the rail. The accuracy seems good so far. I harvested 2 doe with it in 2018 season. I have high hopes for 2019!

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 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

I just bought this crossbow. Can you use tenpoint pro elite carbon arrows with the flat nocks that came with them that I currently use on my wicked ridge crossbow?

Asked by: rivoltam
No. You must use the Omni-Nock. The string angle on this crossbow is too narrow for a flat nock.

why is the draw weight so low on this model. If it is an acceptable draw weight then why is it so much higher on the other crossbows you sell?

Asked by: mark 21
The short answer to your question is that the reverse-draw design of the Horton Vortec RDX gives the crossbow a longer power stroke, meaning the string accelerates the arrow down the flight rail for a longer distance than forward-draw style crossbows. This longer acceleration distance allows for the string to be mounted at a lower poundage-level but accelerates the arrow to speeds that are comparable to forward-draw crossbows with a shorter power stroke and higher string poundage. Here is an article which will explain in more detail: https://www.tenpointcrossbows.com/blog/2019/3/8/top-5-reasons-to-shoot-a-reverse-draw-crossbow/

I have gained a permit to hunt with a crossbow for elk in colorado during archery season. Will this bow meet the 16" minimum bolt length requirement? I'd like to get this bow or the wicked ridge warrior ultra lite. Any insight appreciated!

Asked by: Pumaa7
20" arrows come with the crossbows in both packages.

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.
