I generally go with the Resiliant shields (or a damage-resistance specific shield of the type of damage I'm currently dealing with most - preferrably both), because honestly you have a lot of hull and don't really need to be afraid of hull-tanking a little bit when the shields get low, and the lack of bleedthrough (5% reduction) will maximize the hull tank ability by the time they get through it, and there's a 5% reduction of damage (absorption) right off the top. Plus with EPtS and so on you get a much better return.
A lot of people will push for Corvariant (the cap ones) specifically because the EPtS return is huge in comparison.
