Default how does each part of the taper affect line behavior?

I started looking at redfish line for a new setup and got me wondering, what do the different parts of the taper do to the castability of the line? how will these lines behave differently?

for example, sa's redfish line specs:
Tip Front Taper Belly Rear Taper Running Line Head Length
0.5' 4.0' 21.0' 5.0' 70.0' 30.0'


airflo tropical ridge bonefish/redfish specs:
Tip Front Taper Belly Rear Taper Running Line
0.5' 6' 24' 8' 61.5'


Cortland Precision Tropic Plus Redfish specs:
Tip Front Taper Belly Rear Taper Running Line Grains
1' 3' 18' 6' 62' 210
