SD is correct - as usual - the problem is not the line. But regarding your question, Regatta Braid and Trophy Braid are constructed differently and do have a differend hand. RB is a single braid (i.e. no core). It does have a softer hand and stays that way if cared for. However, I've found RB to be rather easy to snag because off its rather loose construction.
