i will attempt an answer , butt am NO fin expert
for me the 47 or 48 cm fins work best for about 8.5
i use a 53 cm fin for a 10-oh, and 40 cm for my 7-oh
the fin for my 8.5 is a weed fin - so , that may be a question to ask yourself
my 40 cm fin is swept and i use it for my 6-oh as well (could use about 36 or 38 cm here)
i only have one weedfin, butt my w/s buddy says he is buying ONLY weedfins now
we seem to need em $%^&*()
all my fins are Select and i like em
other people here seem to be True Ames or MFC fans
also noticed lighter weight sailors using much smaller wave type fins
with my 100 kilos i like bigger fins and bigger sails

hope someone else chimes in !!!
