135% vs 150%

the asymmetrical would be good for broad reaches and downwind sailing, but you have to turn around sometime.....

Why doesn''t your 150% work well in winds less than 5kts?? With a 100% it will be worse. How heavy are your sheets?? The reason I ask is that when I bought my O"day 28, the genoa sheets were WAY TOO BIG for the boat. They were heavy (I''m guessing larger than 1/2 in) and they pulled my sail down in light air. I went to 3/8 in. sheets and there was a HUGE difference in sail trim in light air!!!
