What is the difference between these two chains? Can I use the PC99 with my 9speed Ultegra drivetrain?

The 89 has hollowed out side plates giving it a tad bit of lightness over the 99, hence most use the 89 on the road and the 99 for mtb. Dimensionally there is no difference. I have read many times that sram chains don't shift as well with Shimano as Shimano chains do. I run the pc89 on 9 speed Campy cassettes and it works fine.
