Smile Slalom light wind selection

Want to buy one more slalom board for Light Wind, used with TR9 9.2m mainly

Weight 65KG 172cm tall

which one is more suitable 117, 127, 137L?
I guess 127L with 85cm width do have very early planning ability.......

Which fin size and brand recommend? 48cm or 50cm better?

Thanks in advance

Same weight as you and I use iSonic 117 Wide with 7.7/8.6/11.0 m2 sails. Planning at full speed in winds from 7 up to 18 knots.

Tried iSonic 127 and it's clearly 1 size larger than iSonic 117 wide. However, I did not experienced any gain in lower planning threshold with lighter winds IMHO.
With 9.2 m2 sail as largest and for your light weight, no need to go to iSonic 127, the 117 should be plenty enough. What is your other high-wind slalom board(s) ?

Thanks JM for your feedback.

My other gears as follows:-

JP Slalom 112L 68cm for 8.4m
JP Slalom 102L 66cm for 6.3m 7.0m 7.6m
JP Slalom 81L 56cm for 5.5m 5.9m

For 117L 80cm, mainly used with 8.4m and 9.2m TR9, what Fin is suitable?
Considering Z -S 44cm and 46cm -> quite high price......
or T43 44cm and 46cm -> used from 30cm to 42cm for other board, quite lovely speed indeed...but comparing to Carbon fin... weight more.....

any comment about the fin selection? Thanks
