Default RE: too long fin

Roger, when it comes to this statement of yours >>while it&#39;s about the right length, it will have too much power and since these wide chord fins are usually a thick foil as well, they just aren&#39;t very fast because they have too much area.<< What do you see as the distinction between power and speed? Are you stating that a thicker foil will have a reduced speed when comparing two fins where the area of the cord is the same if the area of the cord is maxed for the board? I do find that Pfaffi&#39;s rule of them has plenty of exceptions when it comes to my usage of fins.
