Question:

How would this ball compare to the alpha crux

2/6/2020 - By

Have an answer to this question?

Answer:

This ball will have a much different reaction than the Alpha Crux. They are both high performance balls but the Nuclear Cell is designed to go long with a strong backed hook and the Alpha Crux was designed to read the midlane for a smoother arcing hook.

Question:

Would Astro Physics be similar reaction?

2/12/2020 - By

Have an answer to this question?

Answer:

This ball will not be too much different from the Astrophysix. They are both High performance, medium-heavy lane conditions, and both are pearl reactive. However, based on the RG and Differential, this ball may have a stronger hook on it.

Question:

Whats the difference between this ball and the Wildstreak?

3/3/2020 - By

Have an answer to this question?

Answer:

There are a lot of differences between the Nuclear Cell and the Wildstreak. First the Nuclear Cell is a high performance ball while the Wildstreak is an upper mid performance ball. Also, the Nuclear Cell is a pearl cover with a polished finish to give this more length with a sharper backend while the Wildstreak has a solid cover with a duller finish so it reads earlier on the lanes for a smoother reaction.

Question:

Is this ball basically the same as the UFO? Whats the difference between the two?

3/3/2020 - By

Have an answer to this question?

Answer:

The main difference is that the UFO will be designed to read earlier on the lanes because it has a solid cover and a duller finish while the Nuclear Cell is designed to read later on the lanes with a sharp backend hook because it has a pearl cover with a polished finish.

3/15/2020 - By

Question:

would this ball work for a full roller? i average in the low 200s and i'm more of a stroker.

3/15/2020 - By

Have an answer to this question?

Answer:

Yes, this will work for a full roller. When you are having this drilled just let the driller know you are a full roller and they can set the layout up to fit your style. This is still designed to go longer and have a strong backend hook.

Question:

Hows this ball compare to hammer gauntlet fury?

3/24/2020 - By

Have an answer to this question?

Answer:

They will be very similar in a lot of ways. They both have a pearl coverstock with a polished finish out of the box to give them good length. Both were high performance balls designed for medium to heavy oil conditions. The Nuclear Cell weight block would react slightly later than the Gauntlet Fury giving it just a little more length and just a slightly sharper backend but they are very comparable.

Question:

is this ball anything like the hyper cell fused ??

3/30/2020 - By

Have an answer to this question?

Answer:

The only difference would be the coverstock. They have the same out-of-box finish and the same weight block (Nucleus) so the only difference is the Nuclear Cell has a pearl coverstock which will go a little longer than the hybrid cover on the Hyper Cell Fused.

Question:

can you explain what the RG number equates to in a ball .. thank you

3/31/2020 - By

Have an answer to this question?

Answer:

In the simplest terms, the higher the RG, the longer the ball will go before reading and the lower the RG then the earlier the ball will want to start reading. However, keep in mind that the covestock and finish also factor into the length so you could not go by the RG value alone. Also, the RG Dif is going to equate to flare or hook potential. The higher the RG Dif, the more flare the ball will have and the lower the RG Dif the less flare it will have. Again, keep in mind the coverstock and finish also factor into this.

Question:

What difference is there between hyper cell and nuclear cell ?

6/7/2020 - By

Have an answer to this question?

Answer:

The Nuclear Cell would have the closest comparison to the Hyper Cell Skid which was also a Pearl coverstock with the same finish. They were different types of Pearl coverstock so there is a small difference there but really the performance would be very very similar between the Nuclear Cell and Hyper Cell Skid. The other Hyper Cells were different coverstocks and would read earlier on the lanes in the midlane more.

Question:

Is this ball good for a slower speed of 13-14? or is there another high performance that will be more suited for me? My brand preference is either Storm, Roto Grip, or Motiv:)

7/23/2020 - By

Have an answer to this question?

Answer:

For a slower ball speed you will want to make sure the ball gets good length so it will not read too strong too early on. This ball has a pearl coverstock and polished finish which are both designed for good length. I think this should work well if you are in heavier oil conditions and may also work well down into some medium conditions as well. Other options would also include the Storm Trend, Storm Astrophysix, and the Motiv Trident Nemesis.

Question:

I throw a full roller and I am a stroker who averages in the low 200s, I am now throwing the original halo and am wondering what the differences would be for me and if you think it would be a good upgrade for me. I bowl mostly in league on a house shot,thanks.

8/26/2020 - By

Have an answer to this question?

Answer:

The Nuclear Cell will be designed to read much later on the lanes compared to the Halo which was designed to read the midlane and have a smooth arc hook down the lane. If you feel like you need more length or find that the Halo is too strong at times then you may find that the Nuclear Cell could help with more length and it can work down into some medium oil conditions as the lanes dry up some.

Question:

How will this compare the Intense Fire

8/29/2020 - By

Have an answer to this question?

Answer:

This would actually be very comparable to the Intense Fire. They both work in medium to heavier conditions and have a strong backend hook. This Nuclear Cell will have a little more length than the Intense Fire so it makes for a sharper backend but it will only be a little longer than the Intense Fire which also had a polished finish for good length.

Question:

How does this ball compare to the Total Inferno?

5/24/2021 - By

Have an answer to this question?

Answer:

There are some similarities between both balls because both have a pearl coverstock and both give you good length with a strong backend hook. Both also work in medium to heavy oil conditions and both were considered high performance balls. The small differences would be that the weight block on the Nuclear Cell will go react a little later but it also has a stronger flare potential than the Total Inferno. So a little more length and a little stronger backend for the Nuclear Cell.

Question:

Compare to Idol Pearl

6/11/2021 - By

Have an answer to this question?

Answer:

The Nuclear Cell is a high performance ball while the Idol Pearl is an upper mid performance so the Cell has a higher hook potential and can handle a little more oil. Both give you good length with a strong backend.

7/8/2021 - By

They are very similar because they all have a pearl coverstock and 1500 grit polished finish. The weight block on the Nuclear Cell may give a little more length but it would only be a slight difference.
