I would suggest that your old board may have the edge on early planning, but if so only just.... The WC 117 W only weighs 7kgs so very light indeed. A big plus on the controllability and gybing compared with your 133. The tail is a lot narrower so gybes very well for its size. Ideal size sail is 8.5 ish so your 8.8 with your weight will work well. Not sure what your change down sail is but I use a 7.6 on the 117 wide quite often and works pretty well... Hope it answers a few of your questions.
