Default iSonic 105 Fin Suggestion for lightweight sailor

Ian (or anyone in the know),

I have an iSonic 105, which I love. I am still figuring board tuning out. During the Spring, I found the board was pretty hard to control for a lightweight like me when using a 5.5 in choppy conditions. I was using the stock 34cm fin supplied with the board. When I used my 7.7 v8 with this board, I would put the 40cm fin on it. When overpowered, I found the board hard to control.

This summer, I tried the 34cm fin with the 7.7. It was a perfect match. What a difference!! I was totally in control even when overpowered.

So... with my smaller fins, what would you suggest I do for fins? I have a 5.5, 6.0 & 6.6 I use with this board. Should I look at getting a 31cm or would a 30 & 32cm quiver be better for these three sails? Should I go smaller for the 5.5?

Suggestions, please?
