Bought a new SUPERbrand last month and it is amazing. Yesterday I went and checked out some more, this board I saw and feel in love with had a sick top design but the problem is it had Future fins. All my boards I have ever had have been FCS, have you guys noticed a big difference between the two?

Making the fin switch.
there is a difference. I won't go into the inside foil tech, because both brands have it and the difference in ride between IFT and flat foil are too minimal to worry about
I personally prefer FCS because I'd rather have a more balanced board/less weight in the tail. Some claim FCS is weak, but I've only broken out one H plug and that was when FCS first came out. Fusion plugs are supposedly stronger than Future boxes...but I dislike fusion's elongated slots.
Future is a heavier system, overall. Future boxes are stronger than FCS x-2 plugs but Future fins are clunky. Doesn't really make that much of a difference (70s and 80s fins were way more imperfect/clunky and still worked), but I just don't think Future is as refined as FCS.
