Default Futura 133 or 122

I have a futura 122 but I am thinking about switching to a 133. Weight 195lbs sail with 8.5 and 6.5 retro on great lakes (rough water- fresh water). Skill level intermediate (waterstart and jibes).
I am thinking the 133 will be a little easier to sail. I have only sailed my 122 a few times and have found it to be a little small with the 8.5 and stock fin.
What do think - should I switch?
New bigger fin for the 122?
Thanks!
Joe
Also have 12'6" super, formula, fsw 97l and 10,8.5,6.5,5.2,4.6 sails

Antoine Albeau uses an 8.4 with an iSonic 111
or perhaps used ??
i use an 8.5 on a 160 with 100 kilos - 220 lbs
for me the fin that works best is my Select Weed 47 cm
with my weight i would not put an 8.4 or 5 on a 111 nor 122

the issue with our sport is - to try a fin u hafta dish out real money or wait til one hits the used market :-(

lotsa luck

Hmm, fresh water and 195lbs, unless the wind is always blowing over 8knots I would go for the 133 just for buoyancy sake.

Thanks for your answers.
I've decided to keep the 122 and put a bigger fin on it.
I'm looking at the mfc fins - rc - or liquid pro's.

Which one and what size? 44cm or 46cm

Thanks
Joe

Get the RC if you want to go fast. The Liquid Pro's are for better turning.
