Aftermarket screens for '01 ZX-6R

Thinking about replacing the stock shield on my '01 6R, and was
wondering if anyone has suggestions. I'm 5'10", and it looks like the
choices are:
1. Zero Gravity Double Bubble
2. Lockhart V2 Speedscreen (looks like Zero Gravity copy)
3. Lockhart Euro Speedscreen

You'd have to be a midget to crawl under the factory screen (not that I'd ever do that ;->), but I'm looking for something with a bit larger air pocket, both for less noise and more wind protection in cold weather. Just wondering if I'd be better off with one of the Double Bubble units or the Euro Speedscreen, which has an upturned lip across the top? I do tour a bit on the bike, so the Euro Speedscreen looks interesting.

I see in last month's issue of Motorcyclist Magazine, they added a Lockhart V2 Speedscreen to their long term test 6R. I also see in this month's issue of Motorcyclist it looks like Honda is going to have a V2 Speedscreen/Zero Gravity copy on the new RC-51 (apparently Colin Edwards runs one in WSB?).

Feedback from anyone with experience with any of these screens much appreciated.

I only have experience with ZG. I own three of them. One for the Katana, and two fo the Busa. I have a double bubble and a sport touring screen for the Busa. I swap them on and off depending on regular riding or a trip. Zero Gravity makes good stuff. All I can say is that anything other than the stock screen is an improvement. The Busa stock screen is for people who are 4' tall. I couldn't even see all the instruments without ducking down while riding. Streamline yes, but a funtionally poor design from the riders point of view.

I see that ZG doesn't make a ST shield for the 6R. Too bad, it really does help keep the wind off, but it isn't REALLY high. Here is a comparo of the different screens on the Busa:
