I agree here. I don't use torp skills like I use to. If anything I will use the torpedo spread 3 because I like the way it looks when you fire on a group of ships.
At lower levels you kind of depend on Torpedoes to finish the job. You do what you can to punch a shield to get a torp on hull. But in end game content I can get more use out of my energy weapons by focusing all my skills/buffs/consoles on boosting their damage.
Here is the way I look at all my setups anymore. I don't like using anything that conditions have to be right for. As an example, I only fire torpedoes when I have a hull shot. (except the new romulan torpedo, that thing is just a beam weapon really)
