Polarized Disruptors are quite nice for softening a target. Meanwhile, Phased Tetyron are nice for stripping shields.
Depends on how you want to fit a ship and what kind of playstyle you enjoy.
You forgot to mention the nerf to damage as well. It's been a while but I know that the polarized tetryons and phased tetryon weaponry have lower damage outputs than normal tetryon weapons with the same mark and rarity. I haven't checked but I'd assume that it's similar or the same for Phased Polaron and Polarized distruptors. Plasma-Distruptor Hybrids seem to be the only ones that this
the case for.
