Who reaches for their U195 before their U87?

Just wondering for those that own both a U87 (any year) and a U195, which one tends to be your go-to for male rock vocals.

Thanks!

I had both and dumped my 87... The U195 just sounded more alive to me.

That 195 is very nice.

There are lots of flavors of the U87 floating about, yet I feel there is more consistency in the U195.

there are varying levels of spit and smoke residue covering the capsule of most u87s... mine is ridiculously dark and I LOVE it that way.
