Line for streamer fishing: WF or ST?

Just wondering what type(s) of line those who often fish with streamers are using: weight-forward or shooting heads? I like to fish with shooting heads as much as possible because I feel that the advantage it gives me with casting distance, as well as the ability to throw somewhat larger patterns (versus using a WF line) puts me in connection with a greater number of large fish. I'm interested to see what everyone else is using, and why.
