Default Weed Fin for IS 111

For Roger or anyone else that has a recommendation.

I currently use a Tectonics Tomcat 42 on my IS 111, and am very happy with it, but will be using the board in the Hatteras area and need to determine what size weed fin to buy. I mostly use my Maui Sails TR 7.6 on the board, but sometimes an 8.4 or 6.6. The 42 cm fin works fine with all three sails. I rarely race with the 111, just free sailing.

Also, I have a Hyfly Move 105 which currently has a 29 cm Mistral fin, that looks to be about half way between a wave fin and a slalom fin in its design. It too works great with my 6.0 down to my 4.5 sails, but a weed fin is also needed for this board. I use the board mostly for bump and jump sailing. Something around a 25???

Roger, This is Ken from Dallas who also sails formula. I now live in Cary (Raleigh) and will be making trips to the coast. The local guys say a weed fin is needed so you should be the local expert. I don't wait a long time to order one, just something that I can order or buy in a couple of weeks. I know you are big on Lessacher fins, but it appears it takes quite a while to get one. You previously suggested on an old post a 32 or 36 Lessacher duo weed for an IS111. I tend to like fins a little larger than the norm and I weigh 168 lbs, but????

Any suggestions would be appreciated.
