    shaftstop. 30%dr and 60life is always great for mercs. The damage reduce is a lifesaver. It also has lower reqs, and can be equipped at lvl38 with 92 (?) str.
    Generally, shaftstop is easier to get hands on, since most people dont pick up black hades :p

    If you have both, why not try them and see which you like best? If you're using a vamp gaze, the pdr means even more, while if your armor is generally low you may like the black hades.

    If you're looking to trade for one, I'll recommend Shaft like the others. Pdr is really awesome. If you don't have an eth shaft, you could upgrade it if you can afford it.

    Better aim for an upgraded one :

    Ethereal Shaftstop : 898-1026 Def
    Upgraded Shaftstop : 1117-1612 Def

    My sorc's mercenary used to wear a 1400+ upgraded Shaftstop UMed. Very decent armor IMHO. Now he's wearing an ethereal Chains of Honors sacred armor ;)

    Or how about stone in an eth armor (as high as str reqs allow)?
