Default Isonics 2014

this year I've bought the 117 hoping it would have been enough in light wind for my weight/sails (77 kg - 9,2/8,6).It was my most used board while training as it's really a super wind range but,while racing,I was too exposed to wind shift,tides,wind holes after marks.I managed to make it work hardly pumping up the sail but the advantage built in the leg got almost annulled in the restart after gybes (when 10-13 kts).In the end I decided to give my "old" 127 2011 a chance.There was no doubt I was much quicker in light stuff but versus were a much larger carves in gybes,more physic effort in increasing wind and,probably,a reduced speed in the line.
For 2014 my doubts are:
-do I need the new 130 and swap for the 107 a bit earlier (being it bigger now) ?
-do I need the new 117 (better for my weight) being it improved in (very) light wind (10-13 kts) over the current one and swap for the new 97 (that finally seems a great size for 7,8 - 7,0) ?
-has the 127 improved in jibes with average guys weight?
-noticed the 130 has a larger tail than the current 127.Is the size spec referred to the hull (not considering the side cuts)?If yes the deck should be wider as well.Right?Is it the same for the other sizes?

That's all at the moment.

Thank you
