    I have the Pure Storm LTD GT and might get 2 more.
    Though first I will try 2 others Sam Stosurs Pure Storm GT and
    the Pure Storm LTD just to see how they play?
    Does anyone have Pure Storm GT or Pure Storm LTD and comment
    what you think?

    Storm Tour GT as the best of the bunch. It doesn't need any customization and is solid as they come while offering good spin, control, and power. Storm will require lead and more weight to make it more solid.

    LTD is just a different type of racquet with a 95 sq in and more classic feel similar to the Pro Staff 95 line.

    ^ Agree with para!

    Hey para just a question, I know youre going to try out the Blade 16 19 coming up.. but do you intend to test out the 2013 Speed as well? I also will probably try the Blade 16 19 out, but my expectations aren't very high because of my previous experience with the sluggishness of the BLX Blade 98

    I am starting to look into possibly demo'ing the new one, never tried the IG as I always thought it would just not give me any power or stability, but maybe assuming isn't always the best thing to do. I also drew on my past experience with the Youtek Speed and it was just a miserable experience! Here's hoping that maybe, just maybe the new 2013 Speed will be sweet!

    (Sorry for changing the topic!)

    love the tour too, good as is. there is one time that both of my 90s strings broke in a middle of a match. I borrowed my friend's pure storm tour and i played really well. no break in time and i won my match. that racket got my attention.

    Have a few Pure Storms and a Limited in my bag.

    Played with the Pure Storm for a few years while I was learning to play and have since switched to the Limited. The Limited is probably still a little out of my league, but I see it as a challenge really. I am capable of getting a lot out of it, but not really as consistently as I'd like. Much focus and hard work is required, but it's extremely rewarding when you're playing well. It has lead added at 3 & 9 - mostly to make up for serve power lost when I switched.

    For my game the Limited is such a drastic boost in control that I won't even consider reverting back to the Pure Storm at this point.

    Tested out the Tour a couple of times, but I just can't seem to dial that thing in and I'm not sure why not - I am aware some folks enjoy it though.

    There is no best as we all know. Regardless, my vote is for the Limited.
