Default Curtis Mongo or Drake fin for Form 160?

Hi,

I've been riding a Starboard Formula 160 with a 70cm Curtis Mongo Wide Fin and a large (12 to 12.5) sail for low wind, early planing. And it works fairly well, but:
The fin tends to "wash out" if that's the correct word... feels like the fin fell off, when I apply much pressure to it. And it's more pronounced at higher speeds. Makes it a bit harder to sail up wind.

Should I be using the original 70cm Drake fin that came with it?

Goal is for light wind early planing, but be able to still handle it if the wind picks up. I'm 200lbs.

Comments?
