In the case of Vaders they will come built with one or the other. I don't know this as fact, but I think it's now a choice of Futures of FCS II on the kite construction Firewires.
This is a timeless debate. With strong opinions on either side to follow.
I've broken tons of fins on every FCS board I've ever owned so prefer the Futures and happen to feel it's a better fin box for kiteboarding as we (unfortunately) hit the bottom a lot.
Retort, better to break a fin than break a box so FCS is better.
I order my board with Futures, but if a board I want has FCS I'd still buy it.
