Wulff Bermuda Triangle Taper - Thoughts?

When reading posts here that involve saltwater fishing, it seems that the lines most commonly mentioned are those made by Rio (e.g., DC Bonefish, Flats Pro) and SA (e.g., Bonefish, Infinity Salt, Grand Slam), and to a lesser extent Cortland (Liquid Crystal) and occasionally Airflo and Orvis. But one line I don't recall having seen mentioned (I'm sure it has been, I certainly haven't read every post) is the Wulff Bermuda Triangle Taper. So my question is: have people here tried and determined they don't like the BTT lines, or is it just a case that the company and the line are under the radar? I know that the freshwater/trout Triangle Taper is a rather polarizing line, but wasn't sure if that "love it or hate it" views extends to the BTT as well.

I ask because I recently purchased one of the BTT lost tip intermediates to pair with my Sage Payload and absolutely love how it performs; it casts even better than the floating line made by another company with an identical grain weight.

According to the info on the company's site, the BTT lines have a 30' head and are a full size (or more) heavy: 7 wt is 225 gr, 8 wt is 243 gr and the 9 wt is 289 grain. So do people think they aren't good presentation lines if casting to spooky fish? Or do the specs suggest another negative? Again, just wondering why the BTT doesn't seem to be talked about much.

On my first tropical trip in 1999 at the end of the day the guide put his T&T Horizon #9 with a bermuda tt in my hand and for the first time in my life I cast a full line (he told me the backend was only slightly cut back). I went home and bought the package. I also have #10 and #12 bermudas and #7 and #8 bermuda shorts. (I got the shorts cheaply). I also use teeny, airflo, sa and rio tropical lines.

In terms of "over-weighting" I've not noticed fish being spooked and the design of the taper isn't the so called brick on a string.

There is a Trident shootout report on the main lines in the Royal Wulff range.

Yes I am a fan of TT, in temperate freshwater my floating line of choice is TT, and I also use the predator(15ft clear intermediate tip) and clear intermediate. I suspect that the lines mostly talked about are those branded with the manufacturers name - SA, Rio, Airflo, Cortland, because that's where the biggest marketing budgets are.

Yes, certainly not surprised that SA and Rio are the most talked about given their respective market shares (kind of like Coke and Pepsi in the cola industry), just surprised so little/zero discussion of the Wulff lines.
