I've seen the Apex in use and have to disagree. Let me preface this by saying that I don't own one, but have checked them out and decided to keep my Flatline and upgrade it by putting a Custom Pro with low pressure kit on it.
 
My opinion, Flatline vs. Apex:
  • Range: Pretty much equal when Apex is set for max backspin
  • Accuracy: Tie
    • Flatline seemed to shoot a smaller group at range on a calm day (but not by much)
    • Shots from Apex seemed less susceptable to wind interference (don't know why-will probably play with this and try to find out next summer)
  • Cleaning: Tie
    • Cleaning any barrel on an A5 during a game is no fun so I'm just not going to go there. (I don't run a flatline on my A5 for this reason and wouldn't put an Apex on an A5 for the same reason.)
    • On my 98 I could clean my flatline with a rubber pull through and get most of my accuracy back, but it still needed a good cleaning after the game to get it all back.
    • The Apex barrel cleans out very well with a pull through, but I've seen people at the field get driven nuts when they get broken paint in the tip (or the tip takes a hit).
      • They run a squeegee through and get a couple of good shots before paint drips down from inside the tip housing and starts messing stuff up again.
      • They set it for zero backspin, but it doesn't help.
      • Pulling the tip off and pocketing it does help, which is why I called this a tie instead of giving a win to the flatline here.
    • Easy to engage targets with good cover: Win Apex.
      • You can tilt a flatline to get the same effects (to a certain extent) but the Apex provides a lot more options and ranges of effects.
    • Oops factor: Win Flatline.
      • Nobody's ever forgot to reset a flatline and missed me at close range because of it.
    • Safety factor: Win Flatline.
      • Flatlines keep the same velocity when chronoed.
      • The potential for someone to chrono with spin on, then turn it off for excess velocity is a real turn off for me about this barrel.
