Just wondering are these better than a pro 95?

It's ok to ask beginner questions here.

no where near. the pro 95 IMO is the best board on the market.

I still love the holy pro, but yea pro 95 is great. Has my favorite color too.
And it will be more awesome after i buy a deck and mount it with F3 bindings since I despise the F4s.

If it was a question for me: because i find F4 too wide and I'm not able to properly move my foot in them from a skating position to a riding position. Or to jam my feet back well enough. I also feel forced to wear specific shoes, because if not, the binding chafes my ankle.

Yeah had a similar thing with my f4 (whites). In my case since I wear skate shoes it was a matter of letting time pass and gain some callus at the talus level. Oddly, or not, I didn't had the same issue on the black f4. That is why, among other things, I'm almost certain that the f4 whites are constructed to a better standard than the blacks. They feel more robust, the padding more resistant to wear (the padding from the blacks were already starting to wear just after 3 days of riding, when I got them with the comp 95) and the ratchet mechanism is more precise and smooth. After 2 months riding the padding of the pros is still in top shape.

No, nothing wrong with the board per se, but it is a 15deg tip angle and thus incompatible with channel trucks.
