Which Shader settings should I use?

I've been playing CS:GO for about 3.5k hours on a range of low-end to high-end PCs. I've been rewatching old CS:GO videos regarding Shaders and the effects they may have on seeing through things a bit easier and have considered switching my Shader setting. The issue is I'm a little stuck on which Shader settings to use.

I was using High Shaders alongside High Effects to see through the Molotov and Incendiary a little better (for info on that look up 3kliksphilip's video on it). However after running some FPS benchmarking I noticed I only get a real fps boost when I go from High to Low, Medium seemed to do worse than High in regards to FPS (and Very High was the worst for obvious reasons).

According to all of the pro settings sites pretty much all the pros use lowest everything for the most FPS and smoothest gameplay, so I'm not sure if I should follow suit. Don't get me wrong, I'm not struggling for FPS, and I like the level of detail that my game shows. I'm just wondering if it's worth the extra 10 FPS at the cost of changing a setting from High to Low, if the difference in visibility is really that big or if it's all placebo.


Any advice or tips would be greatly appreciated! I'd be happy to answer any and all questions you have. Thank you for reading!
