Samson Trophy Braid for sheets?

Samson sells a double braid intended for sheets called Trophy Braid, which it describes as having a fuzzy-ish exterior for easier handling (presumably against mainstream double braids like Samson XLS or NER Sta-Set).

Trophy Braid is a little bit stretchier and has less SWL than the same-sized XLS, but for our cruising use neither are important. An improved hand though, does hold appeal if there are no others downsides.

Anybody have any first-hand experience / opinions?
