Got a good session with the Drake fin and the 5.6m sail I'll be using for the moment yesterday. When over 13 knots, with flat water, this fin was great, the board was balanced, no spin out. Also did my first planing jibe, this was probably due to going from a race sail (my RAM) to a 5-batten freestyle sail.
The board came off the plane quite quickly though. Pointing upwind, mainly slugging hardly ever planing, was very poor. Now comparing the Venom (which has just arrived at my door though) will be more accurate as I have a good feel for my setup's characteristics.
I'll make a full review in a different thread of my C3 Venom experience.
