Cool from Rocket to Futura

Hallah!
I`m going from Tabou Rocket 135 Ltd (06) to Futura 122 CarbonWood.
Knowers? Thinkers?
What am I to expect.

Talking

Slower top speed
Later planing
Falling off in gybes far more
Harsher ride
Not as good upwind
More delamination
Less money in bank
less sailing
Lots of BS on here about how good Futuras are.
Other aspects Futura might be as good as a Rocket.

Haven't tried the Rocket, but I've tried a Pocket Wave 93l in carbon, and I can tell you that my Futura 93l Wood has more pop (easier to chop hop), speed and felt much crisper on the water.
