Shock Leader Materials

I'm preparing for my first inshore saltwater trip looking for some reds on the flats. Anyone experimented with a braided (Spider wire stealth or other) shock leader? I'll be using a couple of different shrimp patterns on a #4 and #6 hook, so I am concerned about getting proper action without losing too much gear.

To be honest, I wasn't aware that redfish required shock leaders.
