Default What smaller board?

I'm returning to boarding after a few years away from it, and got a Futura 133 and Kombat 105 last year. Looking to get something smaller and would like some guidance / ideas...

The Kombat 105 seems really dialed in with a 6.5, good with a 5.0, and just not balanced when I've had to go down to a 4.5. My thought is that an 80L board makes sense for big wind days, but not sure if that's right, or what model would be the right direction.

I'm 6'3" 195 pounds (191 cm and 89 kg), hitting half my jibes (and quickly getting more as I get time on the water), and sail mostly on Cape Cod where it's flat or up to 4ft rolling chop in a big blow. Love speed, and I don't see a lot of freestyle in my future ;-) but do get a kick out of maneuvering around the big chop.

Thanks!

Great sailing over the flats here if anyone's in the neighborhood:
