I think shadow only makes sense if you stay on the larger cogs, otherwise its main body just gets in the way as with any other derailleur. And that´s assuming you smash derailleurs often....not my case. But I´m just guessing, never tried one actually, so....
Anyway, just for the RR thing, and the weight I would pick a 960 xtr over a SLX anytime.
