Does the Vortex flash hider provide any recoil compensation, or only hide muzzle flash?

No. If you want a comp, buy a good comp. I've got a friend of mine who spent the better part of a match pissed off at his Izzy brake. He wanted something that "looked" a little better than the Mini-Y and wasn't as loud. He learned the old maxim "Pretty is as pretty does" the hard way.

Okay, lets invert the question. Is there a good compensator that also (significantly) reduces muzzle flash?

No, the Vortex is designed to function purely as a flash eliminator, not as a muzzle brake.

The Cav Comp works very well as a comp.

Vortex, Phantom and GI 3-prong are great at getting rid of flash, but no compensation.

The A2 does a bit of both, not perfect at either.

Brakes? On an AR-15? AR's don't need brakes. All brakes are good for is pissing off your neighbors on the line.

And AR's don't have much muzzle flip. So, it is mainly a matter of figuring out what your priorities are.

That being said, my daytime stuff has A2's, my nighttime stuff has 3-prongs.

Remember those old Fabian Brothers comps/flashiders. They looked like a long A2 with a chamber behind the flashhider with a bunch of holes in the top.

You could not be more wrong. Evidently you've never done any competitive shooting. You should check out an IPSC 3-gun match, or a tactical match. When you're running that AR "at speed", an effective muzzle brake makes the difference between being competitive and getting your ass handed to you.
