should i remove all my ductwork to replace them with zoned fan coils?

should i remove all my duct work to replace them with zoned fan coils? the reason i am wandering this is because i am tired of cold spots and want to have radiator quality heat that's even. i will be going with hydronic heat as the base for my system with a large thermal storage tank and wood, pellet and gas or electric boilers. also i may keep my duct work and use a hydronic air handler for the house central heat. i would like opinions on this. so the two options are central hydronic forced air with cooling or have each room with their own in wall heating/cooling fan coils. here is some links to the hydronic air handler and the fan coils.

IMO separate room control is always desireable.
