Default IS 122 vs IS 133

Hi Kev,
Did you decided wich board quiver will you use at the PWA season ?
I had until last month an IS86/111/133 quiver (2009) for local racing but now Im switching to IS86/IS101/IS122. The reason is that for my weight (87 Kg) I found a noticeable range gap between IS86 and IS111 (enough for recreational sailing but not for racing).
The 86/101 seems to work perfectly
But as regards the IS 133 /122 dilemma I dont have yet a final decision.
After 6 months on the 133 now Im sailing on the 122 and I found the following :
Rigged with my new 8.8 Code Red both boards seems to start plannig on the same wind.
The 133 have a little advantage crossing lulls, but only on marginal wind.
Well powered the 122 have a subtle speed advantage over the 133.
On overpowered conditions the 122 is by far more controlable than the 133
Things are clear while gybing, the 122 is a lot more sweet.
I guess that for a heavier guy 95+ kg the choice is 133, but Im not sure for my weight.
I am reading on your blog that you are dealing with the same question, do you have any decision at this time ?

The chassis:
Isonic 2009 122/101/86 , F2 Mauiproject W 90 lts

The motors:
Slalom: Code red 8.8 NP RSR 7.8/6.7 evo/6.2 evo NP RS6 5.4
Wave: NP zone 4.4 North Ice 4.7/5.3

The rider: Age 48 (yeah, I know, so old, but still on form)
Height 1,84 m
Weight 87 kg

I am still working on this decision. I am leaning towards the 133 but I still dont know. It seems better out of the gybes but I need to test some more. It is a pretty big decision.
