I've seen that the apex 2 will make the ball go a little further but was wondering if It would be more accurate without the backspin, or even with the backspin, than the stock barrel on my 98 custom.

it definitely would be better and have more range

My experience shooting an Apex 2 with the backspin engaged is that it does introduce more variability into your shot, and the higher the setting, the more your shot will vary. I say this without having done anything like real testing...just my perception of my experience. If I had to guess why, it would be because the tongue is made of rubber, so it can move and deform, unlike the aluminum in a normal barrel. It's possible that this is an error of perception. Especially at short ranges, aiming an Apex 2 on a high setting is more of an art than a science, because you have to adjust your aim up. If you put your Apex on its highest setting and aim directly at a target at eye level, you'll shoot straight into the ground (assuming the Apex is upright).
