Default Weed fin for formula

Hi,
What size Weed fin would suit my old Starboard Formula 186, ?
I run a 9m Sailworks Retro, am 85kg and normally run a 65 upright fin.
Looking at a True Ames Shallow Water Weed and trying to decide between the 44cm and the 51
I don't have a weed problem but sail in shallow water a lot.

Also What size would suit a Isonic 122 with a 7.5 sail?

Hi Ducati,
Mark H. has given you a good suggestion.
I use the Lessacher Duo Formula weed on all boards wider than 86 cm and they really handle big sails
=> 9.0 at only 40 cm depth.
Others you may want to look at are the True Ames Santa Barbara weed or Shallow water weed in > 50 cm.
Also the Tangent Dynamics "Reaper" in 46 cm does a good job on a formula board (or any > 86 cm wide
board for that matter.
Hope this helps,
Roger

Hi robyfaish,
What size sails do you use on your Futura 131, and what is your weight.
Without the above info, I would suggest the Lessacher Duo 36 cm, but
big sails or a heavy sailor could make the 40 cm preferable.
If you are < 180 lbs./ 81.6 Kg, and using sails < 8.5 m2 the 36 cm will
be very good.
If you use smaller sails, even the 32 will work for higher winds.
Hope this helps,
Roger
