Default weed fin for S-type 126

hi team starboard,
I have a st126 which i use 3 different fins in, one of which is a 40cm leading edge weed fin. I have used it a few times and find that the board is extremely hard to get planing in the same wind strength as the others would make the board release alot earlier. It is harder to get going than the stock 40cm drake fin, which(sorry) but I dont realy like that much compared to the 39 cm select race fin that I find puts the board on the plane instantly and holds good on all angles of sail. I have only used the board/weed fin combo with a 6.5m sail. I wouldn't have thought that this fin would be to small for this sail size.
Has any one from starboard done any testing with weed fins in the s-types to give me an idea of what might be the best way to go. bigger fin/ different make.
thanks dave.
