Honestly they seem dated... small sweetspots and kind of unweildy. Only hit with it a few times but that's all I needed. Seems like there is way better technology out there for Rackets. Just my opinion.

The Pure Storm Tour racquets are great. Good all around racquet, nothing really bad about them. But like everyone ese says: Demo!
I love this racquet by the way.

I like the PureStormTour quite a bit. It isn't real powerful, but I can hit a pretty heavy and penetrating ball with it (more so than with my aeroprodrive + cortex or Speedport Black). I feel it has a very consistent stringbed response. You get out, what you put in. No big surprises like balls that seem to sail long or in the net for no apparent reason.

It also has good feel and is fairly soft. I feel it is softer than my microgel PrestigePro. Still getting used to this racquet, though. (Yep, I buy too many racquets, but hey, there are much more expensive hobbies out there than tennis).

I'm using the pure storm (normal version) and I think its a great stick! I want to add more weight to it though! The PS gives a nice crunch on the ball and it offers a big sweetspot so i guess its a cool bat!

LOL your basing your opinion based on technology?

anyways, it feels soft and has decent amount of power. Nice touch at the net as well from my experiences.

The Pure Storm Tour has a small sweetspot? Maybe if you string it with crap.

It's all the great things of the old Pure Control, but more flexible and with a matte finish and a cooler red/black/silver look to it.

They really got it right with this one.
Truly a RILF.

Yeah, The Storm Tour is definitely a RILF>
Sorry, it's a little crass, but funny.
And thanks to Ross K, it's part of the vernacular around here.

It's American Pie's only great contribution to the world.
Oh yeah? and this one time? at tennis camp? ...
