Trophy Braid vs Regatta Braid

I have used Regatta Braid for a mainsheet and very much liked the 'hand' that it has. I had an ongoing problem with the sheet getting twisted in a 4:1 tackle causing the blocks to get twisted. I could overcome this by very carefully straightening the sheet (towing it behind the boat worked well for this) and releading it. Is this twisting related to the fact that it is single braid?

I am not familiar with Trophy Braid. Does it have similar feel to Regatta Braid? Since it is double braid is twisting likely to be less common?

Thanks for your thoughts.
