Default Fins for a Phantom 320

Since I am looking at purchasing a used Phantom 320 ...
i was wondering how it works with smaller fins ?
believe the 2010 model and later models came with a 44 cm tuttle fin
i sail in shallow waters often and find the 30 cm fin used with my Fanatic CAT handy
what is the smallest fin people use with this board ??
how does it do with weed fins {not my favourite choice :-( }

thanx in advance from a soon to be proud owner of a Phantom Race 320

I have sailed my 320 with a smaller fin to sail in shallow water. If you are sailing in light winds (subplanning), I dont find that it makes any performance difference. the board is noticeably easier to tack.
There will be a difference in planing conditions particularly sailing upwind. You certainly won't do any harm so just do it and see how you like it. there should be plenty of second hand small tutle fins on the market if you don't already have one.

thanks Tony
how do you find the phantom 320 in sub-planing
tried Kona yesterday and my Fanatic CAT was better in sub-planing

The 320 is very good in subplaning. The 380 long boards will always be better for straight line subplaning speed. If you are not racing, then the 320 is more fun to sail because of easier turning and added stability and earlier planning.
I haven't sailed The Kona One. I think doesn't offer the same performance since it doesn't have as big a centreboard and no adjustable mast track.
I have owned the 2009 and 2011 Phantom 320. I think the 2011 is much the same as the current model. The 2009 is the easiest to sail and the 2011 is the faster of the two.
