I use the Advanced LRT with Mayhems Pastel White, and so far so good.
No clouding issues for me.

I think it depends on what you plan to run in your loop, but in terms of plasticizer, I believe they have greatly improved their product.

I was amazed at how clear this clear tubing is. Pastel looks stunning going through it.

I cannot speak for the xspc tubing as I have not used it.

I had the PrimoChill PRO which gave me some nasty leeching. From what I have been told, the Advanced line does not contain the stuff that causes the leeching (DEHP I believe), so it should be ok. Because of my experience with the PRO, I personally am avoiding it.

I am currently upgrading my machine and redoing my loop and I am using the XSPC. Unfortunately, I do not have any data on it yet, but it was pretty easy to work with and it didn't kink even with some pretty tight bends. It is PVC based so it shouldn't have any leeching or clouding.
