spinnaker size

Hello, I am contemplating getting an asymmetrical spinnaker for my boat.

My I is 34.5

I was contemplating a 33' luff from North Sails but according to my calculation 36 should work too.

I'm not looking to race, just to make the boat move properly in light wind. I want to get a sock as I usually sail shorthanded. I've read that this reduces the useable luff by about 2 feet.

Any recommendation on the luff length?

Thank you,
