Indeed. Tetryon Glider averages 9x faster shield drain than the base tetryon weapon proc, so base tetryon weapons are inefficient anti-shield weapons when compared to Tetryon Glider.

The Jem'Hadar set has a number of deficiencies:

1) the lowest capacity, slowest recharge purple set shield
2) combat impulse engines = can't chase very well due to low top speed
3) nominal 7.5% weapon bonus (tactical consoles have +26%), and only for polarons
4) Dominion Synergy buff-removal's low 1% proc trigger rate, and only in Galors and JHAS.

In short, unless you have a Galor or JHAS, you're better off using almost any other set depending on your build (other than the Breen set, which is arguably the weakest set presently in the game).
