Default '08 North Warp vs. '08 Gaastra Vapor

Blew out my NP V8 10.6 last weekend so looking for a replacement rig for my FType 158. Like the performance of the V8 especially the power to get planing in light winds.

Has anyone sailed the '08 North Warp 9.9m or '08 Gaastra Vapor 10m?
I've heard that the free race sails (V8, GTX, etc) have better power for getting planing in light winds. The race sails perform better in every other respect. Early planing is very important since I'm in a wind challenged area. Most sailing is done on the rig above in 9 - 12 knts. I'm 80 kg.

Thanks.
