How good are IKO Storm Shengles

I am replacing my roof and was told by the salesman that IKO made a superior product that was resistant to alge growth. I am thinking about replacing my roof with IKO Storm Shingles. Is this a good choice?

I am pretty sure there are no comments previously on IKO storm shingles on this site - at least not in the few years I have been active here. Can't give any personal thoughts on IKO shingles because I have never run into them - may be a regional thing, or maybe they sell under a different brandname in my part of the country.

About the resistant to algal growth thing - pretty much all manufacturers make algae-resistant shingles (usually with copper particles in the granules) - but you can also put products like Lilly Miller Moss Out (my favorite) on the roof in either liquid-applied or shake type (I prefer this as not so easily washed off by rain) for about $15-20 per application (about 15 minutes job if not afraid to walk on roof) - mine needs it about every 5 years in light to moderate growth conditions, with leaf/debris removal being by leaf blower rather than by washing - and/or by putting a zinc metal strip just below the ridgeline for about $50-100 materials for normal size house.
