With the Sensor handle systems, Volkls tend to always feel very comfortable.
I think the 8 is plenty comfortable, too, but just packs a tad too much punch for me. The 99s is also comfortable as the open string pattern offers a very soft and forgiving feeling stringbed.
I also sensed alot of power in the 8 so its good to hear that the 7 is more controlled.
I would suspect that the 7 is a bit more arm friendly and has more control than the 99s, is that so?
Also, what model of Asics shoes is that you are wearing in the review?
I can not find them in the Asics shop section.
