The Apex is a very well-made chair and my dealings with the company, on behalf of my customers, have all been very positive.

The Apex, however, does not offer an option that I have on my TiLites: seat taper (or "squeeze" as it used to be called). My personal preference is for a seat that's narrower in the front than in the rear because it "cages" my legs preventing them from splaying. That makes my TiLiter more orthotic-like than what I could achieve with an Apex. And that's because metal can be bent in ways that cf presently cannot, which allows the user to achieve a more bespoke chair.
