There are some very interesting stories going around - please note I don’t have the means / opportunity to verify them - about riders buying 12-spd Shimano derailleurs to get SRAM+Shadow or 12-spd Shimano shifters to get SRAM+double shifting.  The best I’ve heard is that, apparently, combining AXS with new XTR cassette/chain/chainring delivers “mind blowing” shifting under load and everywhere else.  —— The issue with running Shimano 12-spd w/ SRAM running gear is that you give up the only real improvement in going from Shimano 11-spd to 12-spd which is the anytime shifting delivered by the proprietary chain/ring-cassette system.  Or, are you running SRAM cassette with the new Shimano chain and ring?! That would be interesting.
