I can relate to all that you said. I rarely will be sailing in those conditions. For me crazy 1ft chop on top of shallow spaced swells at worst. Really all my stuff is slalom biased but wanted something more tame for the high wind stuff.
I have been sailing for 25 years and have a modern forward stance to a point. As i have always sailed more racy gear i leverage the board more equal weighted i would say. As you described it really depends on the conditions though as when things are crazy leverage moves to a more power off weighting.
The lack of power box is a biggie for me to, i have nearly graduated away from Tuttle boxes and by getting involved with *B again emerges a fin issue US/Tuttle of which i have few fins.
