Well you would be wrong. The ports that angle up are very effective at reducing muzzle flip and the ports are not angled 70 degrees forward, they have a forward angle of only 7 degrees.
I can see my impacts from 100yds on out with it.
It's not as effective at reducing felt recoil as some on the market but it does a good job on muzzle flip and is very easy on the ears/blast because the blast and sound are directed away from the shooter and slightly forward.
Because it's a side discharge you also have no problems with dust blinding and there are no issues with the muzzle flash when shooting in low light.
