Sinking line- shooting head or full length?

hi guys,

i'm just looking to get a new line for some fishing where I will need a sinking line for fishing deep channels from shore. Not ever having used a shooting head system previously I was wondering if any of you could help enlighten me on making the choice between a shooting head and a full length sinking line. I think the main question I have is with regard to ease of use. Also- for shooting heads, what kind of running line is recommended and does anyone use heavy mono for the purpose? Since I probably won't use this line all that often would the the less expensive shooting head be a good option?

Thanks for your thoughts,
