Lido variants and Feldgrind, et al., frankly, are fairly poor for drip/pourover coffee. Their advantage is in their small size and portability. When traveling, packability and portability trump grind quality, so then the Feldgrind comes out.
The Apex is on another playing field. Just buy it. The quality of grinds for grind drip/pourover/brew is outstanding. My Forte BG is in a storage cupboard and may or may not ever come out again.
