Hard to say. 5.6 on the 71 is possible but it will be overloaded a bit. 5.0 is sweet spot though. Conversely the 76 is amazingly controllable with powered up 4.5 considering the width and will handle 5.6 much better. But it comes down to wave riding speed, I would say. In quality overhead waves and nice powered up sideshore the 76 might start to feel a bit big, especially if you're on the verge of being overpowered at the same. But if you're usually riding a bit slower waves I think the 76 is the safe bet.
