The upper hoop also seems more responsive. Both serve great, but the Tour 89 seems to swing a bit faster.
All in all, if the 95 is anything like the 89, then the VCORE series is a winner. I haven't played with Yonex in 3 years, but man this new frame is awesome.
Having played with the 89t, 95d, and the 97t I can say that the former 2 are more similar than not. Even though the 89 and 97 are both tour models, I've felt that the weight is about the only thing similar. The 95 and 89 compliment an all court game very well.
