I guess you do like the Reapers ;-)

The Reaper sounds like a good compromise between performance and weed shedding.
A couple more questions re the 39 cm vs the 42 cm fin.

Thank you both for your advice. It's good information to know that my 145 liter Carve is more similar to the 133 Futura. ie making a move from that board to the 122 wouldn't be a huge difference. ...
