All those baluns operate on the assumption that the balanced load is 
primarily resistive.  If the load is highly reactive, as is often the case 
with open wire resonant feeders, the balun may not function properly, 
especially the toroidal types at high power.

I still prefer an honest-to-god balanced tuner, with split stator capacitor 
and symmetrical balanced coil.
