Default Neogenator = Best Shield?

I've been using the Neogenator lately and it seems like it's the best non-Bee shield. It gives good health regen and some extra health, but the best quality is that if you take a hit hard enough to deplete your shield and some of your health, you regen full health instantly. Is there a better shield than this?

96% sham
It's really hard to beat that

I've got a 94% sham, but does it work for things other than bullets?

I know it works against rockets, not sure about anything else

Pretty sure you can absorb rockets. Firing a Kerblaster at your foot with a Sham on gives rockets back. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FBmZVy8k6G4
Also I don't think I've ever seen a 96% Sham before.

The Sham tops out at 94%, but it's a pretty meaningless difference anyways.

No, it doesn't work against anything but bullets, but those bullets will very rarely damage you.

Defensively, the Evolution and The Sham are two of the best shields in the game. For extra firepower, I'd always go with something like the Flames of the Firehawk, The Impaler, or the Black Hole, though.

I think 96 is the max, not sure about it
I'm sure 95 is possible though

Yeah, I had a Axton running around with just a corrosive Norfleet and a level 25 KerBlaster from the slots I had saved in his vault. It was pretty badass.

Why always the norfleet? Badaboom would be better for this in every way
