U87 or SF12 for overhead ??

I've been using the Shure KSM32 as overhead and i'm very satisfied so far.
I'm looking for something better and since i can't really test drive these products, i would like to get some opinion from you guys.
My decision boils down to either a pair of U87 or the Royer SF12. I will be using them with my dakings Pre/EQ. Thanks.

Not really into 87's as overheads. Anyone else?

If there's a list of what U87's are bad at "overheads" should definetly be on top! Much better of with TLM103, KM184, AT4051, C451/CK1 or Groove Tubes GT44 IMHO.

I really do like the U87 for male vocals coupled with D.W.Fearn or Great River MP-2NV. Very often rocks!
