Whatever your decision, you will gain in liveliness and speed with respect to your AHD.
PS: don't know the 2007 model exactly but I remember the ST115 felt (and probably was) closer to 108 liters. Don't focus too much on volume but rather on recommended sail/fin range.
I got the JP Super X 106l today. Couldn't be happier. Unbelievable difference in performance coming from my AHD. Extremely fast, feels wider, planes sooo much earlier.
Thanks for your recommendation.
