Actually I recon you want to go for at least the 133 - early planing is a function of width - hence why formula boards are so wide - so if you want a board to plane as early as possible you want a wide board - I in the same position as you went for a 144 - (I have a 114 eagle as a change down board) to maximise TOW and early planing as to speed no one can really keep up! I too used to have a AHD Free Diamond 70 - believe me the Futura is a totally different league!

The 144 also comes with a good 50 cm fin perfect for use with an 8.5 - I also have a 40 cm fin - which I use with the 7.0:

Hope this helps!
