It serves bombs and with groundies and volleys it is ridiculous how much control you can get. The only thing is that it's a huge drop in power from the PD and the feel is completely different.
Yeah I also worry about the extra weight, which I fear in a 3rd set could make me a bit sluggish on my serving. I also though the LtD was way too much stick for me, with aminute seewtspot, and ideally suited to guys who were almost pro's! But it has always intrigued me....maybe I should try the Ltd too,...mmmmm

The one racket that stood out the least when I demoed it just hitting or not really paying attention to how well I did.
I did used to play plus rackets, but I simply found they were not quite as manouverable for me on a lot of approach shots, but they did rock on baseline bashing for sure. Like you, I agree that the Pure storm is a bit of a sleeper range of babolat and well underated by most amateurs, and weekend warriors
