Anyone have any experience with this guy or his product?

WWW.SKYSOLSTICEWINDSCREEN.COM

I'm really interested in the low profile tinted but I'm unsure how useful the low profile would be.

I like the low profile look they're showing, however this website only appears to offer trunk mounted windscreens. According to other peoples posts that I've read, the trunk mounted variants can damage the rubber trunk seal as the trunks being closed. Also the trunk mounted wind deflectors may not work as efficiently as a front mounted. Additionally trunk mounted can run on the glass of the tops up and damage things. I've only read about these things, but it was enough to sway me towards front mounts.

Lower profiles won't block as much wind. I almost wish my V2 was higher.

Yeah I know =(. I know theres a fine balance between what's functional and what's "cool". I'm pursuing the cool factor just a tad more than effectiveness.

I did see several options that are larger than the WR, that just didn't fit my "cool" bill.

The cool factor is more stressed and regulated on the silver car's, heck, even GM saw fit to name our paint correctly. Cool. 😎

Hey, sorry to be so late on this...But, that's not true. At all. First off, we're made of Acrylite not Lexan. It might be taller, but it certainly isn't thicker. Also, please note our bracketing systems are vastly different. Those unsightly plastic straps or belts are also unsafe. We standby the fact that we make the strongest wind blocker on the market. If you have any questions, please let me know.

I very much appreciated all the feedback I got. I ultimately went with a tempered glass screen. I'm very impressed with how solid it is. It utilizes a screw that was already behind the plastic, I just had to drill an 1/8 hole through the plastic so the screw could go back into the metal housing. Looks and works great.

I hit 100mph on a lonely highway this past Saturday. This thing is solid as a rock, absolutely no movement from the wind.
