Are vortex made in USA? I sent them email, but havent heard back Trying to avoid stuff from china
Pretty sure the guys who make them are semi-regular here...
Plenty of great heads still made in the USA if you’re willing to forego the moving parts...
I believe they are but am not certain. Grim Reaper is made in the US though.
Wards outfitters make them. Pm Steven
I have killed about a dozen animals with Vortex.....awesome head!
I thought that might have been the case. I will reach out to him.
Reach out to Steven Ward and then give them a try. Great broadhead!
For those of you that have used or do use them how do you guys practice with them? I have seen some glue blades shut. Never shot mechanical, but want to use some for upcoming bear hunt.

I use Gorilla Super glue gel. I still leave the o ring on there for some reason.
I use bent blades to practice with. When the section of blade that goes into the ferrule has a tiny bend in it , it holds the blades closed. The only “ problem” is that you need pliers to close it each shot.
Just don't practice with them. Works for me. And I'm serious. I used to practice with mechs but I am far past that. I've only ever bought quality mechanicals and I have never ever had one NOT fly perfect. Tune your bow with a big fixed head, and you will not have any issues.
Thanks for that tip. Looks like I will have several options.
For the most part I do as APauls has mentioned. I like to confirm things once in a while, especially longer shots. When I do I either have a head designated as a practice head or I replace or sharpen the blades as needed.
