The FD has a gap in the cage, shimano either uses a rivet or screw for this gap or makes the cage out of one piece of metal. The Apex FD appears to suffer from a bad cage design along with the gap in the derailuer becoming larger over time.

Like I said before, it worked flawlessly for about 1000 miles so it was set up correctly by the shop I bought the bike from. Over time and using it, it didn't work so flawlessly anymore.

I have nothing against SRAM.

I will also step out of this conversation and apologize to the OP.
