Torpedos get a penalty against shields that energy weapons don't have.

With a little cross-healing shield resists can easily be boosted to the cap of 75%. Getting hull resists to similar levels is much more difficult. High resists also magnify the value of heals. And hull resists can be debuffed, shield resists cannot.

And most importantly: you need to take into account that ever since TT, attackers have had to go through essentially all four shield facings to hit hull instead of only one.
