Default Evo 80 sail quiver?

Hi

I have an 07 Evo 80 and (already) love it!

Im thinking of updating my sails, and one of the things im aware of is that i hardly ever use my 4.2...like maybe once or twice per year (and its more like survival than good waves)...and im on a mission to cut down on stuff!

What is the max size i can put on a Evo 80 and be good to go?
The specs say 6.0...is this borne out of experience by anyone?

And following on, im wondering what would be the best 3 sail quiver for the Evo 80?

FYI
Im 85kg and (try to) sail waves, mainly DTL
Currently i have 4 x 05 Ezzy's: 5.8, 5.2, 4.7 and 4.2
I would say that >70% of my sailing in covered by the larger two.

BTW, Im talking about replacing with 2008 Ezzys here, not another brand (cant afford to replace the masts and im very happy with Ezzy durability in waves)

So - these i guess are the key options
6.0, 5.2, 4.7
6.0, 5.2, 4.5
5.8, 5.2, 4.7
5.8, 5.2, 4.5
5.8, 5.0, 4.5
5.5, 5.0, 4.5
5.5, 5.0, 4.2

(a pal has just two - 5.5 and 4.7 and seems to cope well!)


Any Thoughts / ideas?

PS
Anyone tried the 08 Ezzys care to comment on them?

Thanks,
Northy
