AF legs probably. If you don't have byakko's haidate yet they're a decent piece for maintaining 6-hit while having haste in both hand/foot slots. AF+1 hands are really only for penta, possibly tachi: rana.

i'd say legs for WS and possibly for a 6-hit if you don't have b.haidate yet (like bsphil said). head is a nice inventory+1 since you need AF around for meditate anyway (may matter less in these satchel days, but it looks like you may have some gear strain with all those 75mages). body and feet are both utterly useless. hands good penta like bsphil said.

Shura is better for rana/penta
AF+1 is better if you can use it for 6-hit or eva build

if neither of the above are in play they are equal dmg wise

id upgrade the head. its a permanantly nice piece of equip. anything else is just a temporary stepping stone to things to come.

I upgraded the legs first. STR+5 and store TP+4 is pretty good for WSing and TPing if you don't have B.haidate. Next piece I upgraded was hands for Penta thrust. The only piece I've left to upgrade is head, which looks pretty sweet.

Legs is a nice piece pre-haidate/pre-shura.
If you only have 1 of those, this legs are still nice for TP and WS.

If you don't have RNG 75, head also a good piece to upgrade. (inventory-1).
Hands are nice for Penta Thrust/Rana.

I upgraded legs so that I can WS in Alky's (instead of Hachi hands) without sacrificing 6 hit. I'm pretty satisfied with it.

WS

I might upgrade head next to replace Wyvern helm for WS just so I can look like a Samurai again =P

Wouldn't Any of the O/N/BKote or Usukane Gote be better choices for Penta (unless you were using some kinda 2-3piece shogun build)

Probably. I sold my o.kote a while ago though after getting SAM75. When given AF+1 hands and asking when they'd be useful, the answer would have to be penta. Are there even better pieces for penta? Absolutely.

Well...

I dont think that the SAM AF+1 isnt really that great.

The head is a decent WS piece for YGK, then you would only need hisso or Ohat for Penta/Rana.

Me, i plan on uncursing a Shura Head for Rana and YGK since i can use it on NIN too. But that leaves me with Ohat for Penta and the kabuto for Meditate.

The hand can be a decent sub for Penta if you dont have okotes. Any of the red kotes is probably better due to the low mods of penta, but they are also fairly expensive. 20 Beastcions should not even be half the price of the Horomusha.

The legs is a good YGK piece. Again, id go for shura as i can use that for both YGK and Rana, but you might be able to work this out to not need sTP somewhere else on your WS set for a 6-hit build. Legs +1 might also be one of your best TP pieces before Haidate.

The Body and Feet are useless.

That said, both Shura Legs and Head are fairly easy drops to get from sky.

The other good thing about Shura Haidate, is the +1 has dropped in price quite nicely, you can buy the -1 Haidate for 2M now, which for ppl with Sam, Mnk, Nin, is the best ws piece available to them outside of spending 20M for an additional 4STR (and a loss of 8acc for Nin or Mnk)

I've picked up a -1 Haidate, just waiting for another D.Legs to drop now, we get a Haidate nearly every Byakko, but D.Legs seem to be quite rare. 1 every 4 to 5.
