Carbon fin verses aluminum fin

The 9700 came in today with a Goode option fin and a standard shape carbon fin. I think the option fin looks like the back has a reverse slope up towards the boots. I think I want to start with the standard shape. I do not have a clue what the advantage of carbon has over aluminum. What is it with the carbon fin. Should I try it first or use a standard shape aluminum off of another ski I have?  I want to ski in the morning so a fast reply would be appreciated. Multiple replies would be great. Thank you ahead of time for your help.

Goode 9700, 65.5", 140 AMP, 144lbs, 5' 10", 34 mph. Short line.
