Since two weeks I have my 117W next to my 111.
The 117W planes a lot earlier than the 111 with Reflex 8.6 and likes jibes and downwind.
It carries my weight easily and I can draw my 8.6
I use a S1 in 45.5cm and in 43.5cm, the 47.5cm is to big.
Of course in lighter winds and reaching the 131 is a bit faster in my weight class. Maybe not in yours.
