That would be the Q76. You will lose some high wind proficiency relative the E70 for sure, but despite that the Q76 is wider than the E75, to me it handles both high wind and a bit higher wave riding speeds a bit better than the E75. I would say it has a slightly harder ride through chop (in a straight line), but this is balanced by the fact that there is less fin leverage and that it has a more compact feel to it, easier to pin down. On the wave, at least for me, it beats the E75 in every aspect both when its super light and when its more powered up. Below is a pic from a few days ago, Q76 and 4.7 (@71kg).
