Noticed you picked up the 95" in 63 flex and the 100" in 70 flex.

I have the opposite with:
1) a pair of 95"/27"/320gr/305mm/70ra/16x19 with strung specs of 11.9oz/9HL/67ra.
2) a pair 100"/27"/310gr/315mm/63ra/16x19 with strung specs of 11.6oz/6HL/60ra.

From everything I've read, I believe the new version Angells are the exact same as the Vantages. So if this helps anyone, here is my first hand experience with two different sizes and flexes:

I have only had the 100's for a week, and I think I am going to move to them permanently from the 95 which I originally had no plans of doing. I was just curious what the 100 was like as I picked them up for a very good price in the fs section of TT.
I like the comfort and dwell time of the flexier 100 and am also getting a slight increase in power even with more flex due to the increase head size and 3 points more weight toward the head. I even strung the 100 with full poly at 58 while the 95 is currently strung with poly mains and syn gut crosses at 58. The 100 also gives me a little more room for error, and it swings nearly as quick as the 95" having .3oz less weight. The only drawback of the 100 I have so far is a slightly less crisp volley.
I can't say for sure which is better on the serve yet as I am still getting used to the different specs of the 100, but the 95/70 is the best serving stick I've used to date. I think once I get the timing down a bit more, the 100 may be even better with the extra weight toward the head for power plus the larger head size for more access to spin. I have already notice an increase kick on topspin-slice 1st serves.
RACQUETS: Vantage 95 (Strung: 11.5 oz, 5HL, 67ra, 16x19, 26.5")
CURRENT STRING: Genesis BM 16 @ 56lbs Mains / OGSM (natural) 17 @ 60lbs Crosses
