They are great.
Seems like lots of the magfed guys had them, none of the electro's that I can recall.

They just send a rope at you. LOL

I have an Apex freak tip with an Apex 2 on it, but I've never used it. I've pretty much only played airball since I've had it.

I hated the original Apex barrel, as the stock barrel was so inaccurate. It was fun, but not worth keeping. I was just looking online now at the Apex2, and it seems they have overcome the crappy barrel by putting it on a freak system, which is my go to barrel system.

Now the follow up question - I have several older, original freak kits that I use for various guns. The information online says the Apex2 tip on the SUPER freak system. Can I use the newer SUPER freak tip on an original/older freak back? Or do I need to purchase all new backs?

I believe, but not 100% positive, that the Super Freak uses different threads than the "normal" freak. There are, however, Apex tips for the original freak. That's what I have. They are hard to find, though.

I loved using my Apex for those long shots under the low hanging tree branches.

This is what I used mine for a lot too. Dudes would hang out under low branches and you couldn't get an arc on them...but the Apex would loft up underneath. Lots of fun.

For threaded barrels the Apex 2 threaded tip fits Hammerhead/Lapco threads.
Lots of good barrels out there in better bore size.

Think I can get Lapco to do a run of ICD Apex ready barrels.

One of my potential Apex "project" barrels has a .684" bore. That one will get the slip over tip I plan on making.

An Apex can be very useful in a lot of situations.

Had an A-5 with a Flatline for the longest time and loved it. Sold it years ago and haven't shot anything that felt the same since. I've missed that flat trajectory. For the longest time I was debating getting an Apex for big games, but I'm definitely gonna pick one up. You guys sealed the deal for me.
