I use Barrel-Blade Longrifle, and in all honesty I would have trouble swapping it out for even Bristleblitz Striker or Black Bow of the Betrayer (which are side-grades imo...but might save me on ammo costs). I can't tell you how many times I passed on the Serpentspine Bow to get a bunch of tells from guild-mates. This is probably one of the most asked questions, but the reality is that speed actually is that important. Dear Blizzard, understand this next time you make nearly every ranged weapon 3.0 speed. kthx.
