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.
It is better to have it and not need it THAN to need it and not have it!
