Clownbents onwards have carbon fibre stringers so they're a little bit more lively. I hugely prefer the new ones, having owned both, but I kinda sucked a lot more when I had the old ones so my observation could be a bit skewed.
I still have my old (ruined, waterdamaged core...) ones on the wall in my garage because they look sick.
