What is the difference between the original Storm v2 and the Adjustable Storm v2 model?

Original Storm v2 Rotary consists of a direct armature bar hit and has a very hard direct hit. The Adjustable Storm v2 Rotary has an adjustable "give" or dampening system to create more of a spring/coil like hit similar to coil machines. Both have their uses. 

Original Storm v2 comes with all three bearings (short, medium, long) which allows you to have a full range of different needle depth hits. The Adjustable Storm v2 Rotary comes with one 4mm medium stroke pre-installed. The short and long stroke is not necessary for the Adjustable Storm. 

The Original Storm v2 can do it all but is best at color packing, blending, and large lining. The Adjustable Storm v2 can do it all as well but especially excellent for soft greywash shading and smaller lining. 

Ultimately, we feel that the best option is to have both! With both, you complete your arsenal of shading, blending, color packing, soft greywash shading, lining both large and small. 

Please note, Storm Rotary is NOT compatible on some Hurricane Power Supplies. Storm machines will run on OUR genuine Hurricane Power Supply. If the Storm does not run on your Hurricane Power Supply, then you may have a knockoff version.
