Default KA117 anyone really happy with that board?

I had an A117, K107, KA127* and now a KA117 and a K86

I loved the A117 hated the KA127 and after about 8 sessions just can't find any reason to keep the KA117. The K86 planes earlier (easier is maybe the better thing to say), is faster (GPS) and gybes much better.

Is anybody really happy with their KA117?
- I can't persaude the thing to plane (it just sticks and sticks and sticks, what people used to say about the A117, which I could never support)
- during the gybes the "power steering?" kicks in and grinds the board to a halt. Narrow radius gybes are only possible down the face of a wave. I'm still wondering if there is a power steering or if the power steering is a nice marketing way to phrase my experiences with gybing that board.

Any input from a happier customers?

*(FT138, ST104, C145, C111, A117, ST137, plus the list above).
