Default Futura 133 to replace Carve 151 & HS 105

Hi,

Can I have advice on replacing a Carve 151 , and a 105 HS with a Futura 133? Sails: 8.5 m and 7m. Me, 65kg.

I am anticipating that the Futura would :

go faster than the C151
get planing just as early, with a 52cm fin and a bit of pumping
be more user friendly than the HS105, especially in the corners
be as fast as the HS 105

Am I wrong?

Views?

I'm responding because I'm curious about what more experienced sailors will answer. My uneducated guess is the HS 105 would still have faster straight line speed, but I don't have the technical precision required to do well riding the HS 105 so the Futura 133 would be faster overall for me.

Usually one new board is not enough of a replacement for the range covered by two older boards. My suggestion is to have a phased solution by first replacing the board which is least satisfying while planning to replace the other board later.

Thats probably the best way to go for sure.

May also be worth considering keeping the HS and selling just the C151 and replacing it with a F141. F141 would definetly be faster than C151, and better gybing etc. The HS are being sold for about 150, so not a lot, for that type of re-sale value its worth keeping.

Never tried a HS back to back with a F133, but I'm pretty sure the HS would faster in a straight line most conditions because the HS can use smaller fins than the F133.
