I'd vote for the Futura 155 as the easiest to get on plane and the best replacement for your FF 158.
I'm not sure why you are having to pump so much.
Maybe we need to discuss your technique a little or something.
One or 2 pumps to "launch" the board were all I remember having to do.
Are you only pumping with your rig, or do you do some fin pumping also.
I found fin pumping to be more effecitve than rig pumping on that type
What fin are you using?
Hope this helps,
