Default RE: The writing on the fin

Ok, Matthew got me thinking about my Drake fin. So, I'll tack this question on to the end of this thread.

I have a Drake Race 700 from 2003. The tip looks a lot like the current Drake R19 Race NR -- I only say that to help describe what it looks like.

Can anyone tell me how you would expect this fin to work for someone like me? 145 pounds.

I've been using this fin on my F-Type 148 with a 9.8m2 V8. The combination seems to work well for me. I can get on a plane pretty early and it remains controllable even when the wind picks up.

So, is there anything you can tell me about how stiff this fin is? What was is designed to do well? for what size person?

Starboard [Gemini, F-Type 148, iSonic 105], AHD [Convert 60, GT Special 73], Windsurfer
Neil Pryde [v8 9.8], Sailworks [Retro 8.0; Hucker 6.6, 5.6, 4.8]
