I hate the Apex stands like most of you hate X stands. Maybe more.
I soured on them some years back, after I lost the special inside-threaded bolt that held the Deltex together -- and U.S. told me that there were no spare parts, nor would they give me specs to try and get a new one machined.
That said, a 10 degree tilting shelf and a place for pedals is very attractive. I look forward to being a trailblazer follower, as soon as someone else tells me how the upper shelf can tilt down without the keyboard falling off.
