Default Best all-around sail for a Carve 171

Hi
I have a 2011 Carve 171 that I sail with two different sails; a worldsails 5.6 (over 15 kts of breeze) and a worldsails 6.7 (under 15 kts of breeze). Both sails are at least 8 years old but in really good shape. I have noticed that I have a hard time getting on a plane compared to other sailors in the same area as me, despite much rig tuning (by me and others)

I am 200 lbs, sail in most wind conditions (heavier air now, light in the summer), live in northeast USA. I am a new sailor, but proficient in harness use, beach starts, occasional water starts, blasting (no straps yet!)

Does anyone have a good recommendation for an all purpose sail with a good low end? I plan on investing in one or two, but want to be able to plane in light air if possible.

Thanks!
Steve
