Not quite sure exactly what you're asking. Are you more interested in speed or pointing ability? These things will depend on more conditions than just wind strength- things like hull shape, keel length and ballast, number of crew (more hiking if you're racing, for example). If not pointing ability, and you don't mind a little more heel, I'd go with the 120% genoa, which really isn't that big compared to the blade... What we do on our J24 may be different, but if I have all of our crew (5 total) up to about 18 mph (about F4) of breeze we use the genoa (which is a 140%), and I just use a combination of traveller and backstay to keep the boat flat in the puffs. Wait till one of the mods (like Jeff) answer; you'll get more of what you are asking soon. I'm still kinda new at this.
