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.
I couldn't agree more, I like it even more than my beloved RDX500 mid.
It is a lot like the MP 1 Tour imo.
There'll always be a what, a where, a when, a why... Synapse is the how!
