Default RE: Wich board?

Thanks Ian.

To be more specific :
I have 4.0 naish (hokua), north 4.5 voodoo, 5.0 drX and 5.7 drX i use on mistral syncro 90L 2004.

I use a lot 5.7 drX on syncro and radar and also 7.0 gaastra matrix on radar. So a am looking for a board that follows my mistral syncro. I want to use it with 5.7 up to ...

I had a 8.5 arrows dragster, but i sold it, because i didn't like a sail this big. I thinks i am going to replace my 7.0 with a 6.5 and 7.7. Do you think this would be a better quiver?

So my new board, i would be using with 5.7, 6.5 and 7.7 to 8.0 (depends on whats available). I have seen starboard and i like to have one, but i don't know about the volume and type of board.
This is my first question.

Second was : is a bigger board going to give me more advantage for earlier planing? For example (2004), i give specifications of carve, but i am thinking now more for buying s-type:

Carve 131 : 5.5-8.5 (sailrange) : this would suit my sailquiver the best
Carve 145 : 6.0-9.0 : would this give me more planing ability with 7.7 ro 8.0 then the carve 131l? How about control, reactiveness down in 5.7 weather?
Carve 161 : 6.3-10.0

I would appreciate your advice

Thanks very much, Koen
