I had the 127 and found it very good. Didn't really notice much bottom end difference between that and the 117 with the 8.6. I just wanted to try something different and got the 117 which I am very happy with, it has great range. If I kept the 127 I would have bought a 9.2 or 9.6 and would have had to buy a new boom, didn't really want to go to that expense. Thought when I bought the 117 the gap was going to be too close to the 107 but its heaps wider and more for the light-medium wind end. If you are happy to buy a 9.2 or 9.6 I would go for the 127 because you will get a bit more out of the bottom end. If you just keep the 8.6 then go the 117. Just my opinion, good luck and good move with the 107.
