FCS Premium Range uses a unique D-ring mechanism which is the most secure way to tie down boards as it does not rely on moving parts or springs which are prone to failure.

The secret to avoid noise from straps in the wind at high speed is to roll the straps tightly before connecting them inside the car, so the part that is on the roof has a round shape, more aerodynamic, instead of the regular flat shape of the strap. I had zero noise by doing this. Also make sure no strap end is loose or is going to slap against the roof and make a lot of noise too.
This is the type of soft rack that passes through your car (on the inside through the door seals) and holds 1-2 boards on top. It does not come with the door seal grasper things, but rather has a tie down system that secures the two ends of the line inside the car. I highly recommend twisting the line that sits on the top of the car between the door and the actual board pad/tie down. By twisting the line you will ensure that you don't get the flapping sound that others have complained about. Only 1- 2 twists usually fixes it (just a wind problem), but I like to basically twist it all the way up. I have not noticed any degradation in the quality of the product through the uses. You do want to make sure you understand the tie-down system (I recommend watching a quick video...or just looking closely at the direction of the 1,2,3 arrow markers that are actually on the metal tie-downs). The boards WILL lift and shift and move a little while you drive....but I've been on the freeway going 70+ in driving rain and the boards don't come off if properly installed. Most of the movement is from the racks just moving a little (nothing abnormal) which translates to some bouncing in the board on occasion...basically a little movement shouldn't be a reason for concern. BUT, if it's raining you will likely get drips inside your car (remember how the line tie downs are in the car??). There is no way to avoid this, the line that runs into the car acts like a candle wick, drawing the water inside if it's raining outside. This isn't as big a problem in light rain though. I don't recommend these as everyday racks for all your needs....but, they are pretty solid and especially useful for travelling, rental cars, occasional surfboard transport needs.
Two issues. First, the front rack can make horrible sounds when you go 50 mph and above. To avoid that, just twist the straps on top, so that they touch the roof almost all the way. That way, they won't act a tout string. You only need to do this for the *front* rack, because the rear one will sit in the airflow nicely.
Second, if you drive with it in the rain *the water will get inside the car* via straps. The only way to deal with this is to get roof rails, because any soft rack will have this problem.
