Somehow I completely missed addressing your question about the Aero 127 WOOD.
The Aero might be pretty good.
It's wide, and planes quite early.
I'm not sure it's what you really need to handle windier/choppier conditions however.
It's real design intent was sloppy onshore waves for larger sailors.
It's a pretty "loose" design, very turny, to make it perform in sloppy waves, and those may not be the attributes you need as a high wind board.
It's also a little too close in both width and volume to your existing board.
Perhaps a Carve 122 or 111 might be better as your higher wind board.
Hope this helps,
