Do you have a 150%, or something smaller? A popular size for a roller furling genoa is 130-135%, and a J length pole works reasonably well for that.What's your guess for a pole length flying a 150 (on a 31' boat). Rascals are pricey!
A topping lift is helpful to prevent the pole from weighing down the sail too much, but a downhaul isn't really necessary.
A whisker pole will be lighter and can be adjusted to fit and takes up less deck space, but since you already have the spinnaker pole I'd try that first.
