Krieg shields

I know people have been saying Thumper, Hide, and Firehawk are his best shields. What about Rough Rider? It seems made for him with the amount of buffs to his skills it gives.

Rough rider is a good shield for krieg as it gives you more health and durability instead of damage to melee attacks. With a decked out krieg using a rough rider instead of a love thumper you will being doing about 1.5 million less damage per melee hit.

Dosen't it balance out though because of the contant shieldless buffs? Taken from the wikia: ■Krieg: Feed the Meat and Embrace the Pain, as well as Krieg's Meat and Legendary Psycho Class Mods, will not have drawbacks due to the fact that there is no recharge delay. Empty the Rage will always present its full bonus and Embrace the Pain will always be on. Fuel the Rampage, Salt the Wound and Release the Beast will work more efficiently since all damage will be health damage. Additionally, the provided 20% damage resistance prevents Redeem the Soul from downing the player, instead reducing health to below 33%. This allows Release the Beast to immediately take effect.

Wouldn't this basically mean constant BXR?

With a love thumper your shields will be down 95% of the time due to the very long recharge delay. My rough rider shield gives 94000 health if you use a health relic and have 5 pts in feed the meet this bonus grows to 188000 health.
I'm not saying you are wrong for choosing the rough rider as it has some great perks with kriegs skills. The love thumper will do more melee damage. You just need to determine if you want more defense or damage. The damage difference is noticable especially on a slagged target.
