you can have any rudder you like as long as it isn't a hydrofoil. Many people have fireball or albacore rudders. Long and straight is what you want

I'm sure someone will correctly if I'm wrong, but Larks don't suffer the material restrictions of e.g. Fireballs (no carbon)

Correct. Make it from chocolate if you like although you won't win and it may get eaten.

The point I wanted to make was that if you buy a rudder designed for another class make sure it is not over-expensive/weak/un-hydrodynamic due to restrictions imposed by that classes rules.
