Roto Grip Nuclear Cell vs Storm Omega Crux vs Storm Snap Lock

Today I want to spend a little time comparing these 3 pearl asyms. They are very different and very similar at the same time. The Roto Grip Nuclear Cell comes out of the box shiny.

Storm Phaze III Surface Adjustment

I frequently mention that I typically like to “crack the factory polish” on many out of the box polished balls. This is not an exclusive thing to Storm just to be clear.
