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.

my old duct work is asbestos and missing old parts. so i am deciding on weather to abandon them or have new duct work put in.
