Is it even worth it? Does anyone have any success with Shield Specialist at all? While leveling I love being Shield Specialist, but am wondering about it's success at 50.

Its totaly ok and fun - talking about PvP part. Always 8-12 medals a game, 7-8 when you facing a premade and loosing badly.
You can do nice 100-350k dmg (yes, as shield spec), 0-100k def - depends on your style.
At least I got these results (valor 61 battlemaster, 5 pieces of bm gear (tho 3 of em ear and implants), rest champion).

Just respecced Shield specc from Assault and having an absolute blast. You will have a LOT of damage mitigation + decent damage on top of that. You will also have a lot of mobility; Storm + Imp. Storm + Harpoon + the Ion snare talent and no man will outrun you. Just don't specc past Storm. Once you hit storm I suggest going into Assault or Tactics for one of the two dot abilities.
