mgiguere is on a distinguished road
My #1 is a 155 and the #2 was a 135 until we shredded it in a storm last summer. We had it re-cut to a 110 which the sailmaker called a "lapper". We now use it most every day unless we need the #3 (70%). It's high cut and goes to windward very well. With one or two reefs in our fully battened high roach main, is the perfect combination.
