Default Brake Shoe & Lining

What is the preferred type of lining? Hard or woven? Does woven wear faster?

I would go for the semi metallic composite material. I don't think anyone offers shoes relined with this material as a standard product but JG Brake drum will reline your shoes with semi metallic and arc them to your drums. It's worth doing and the increase in performance is impressive.
