Mirror Extender vs Aprilla Tuono Mirrors?

Looking to allow a view that does not include my shoulders and arms. After a review of the 2012+ forum section seems many folks pick the Aprilla Tuono Mirrors and / or Adventure Tech Mirror Extenders. (BTW Shoulder width is about 21" and I am 6'3" tall big frame and chest)

So vote for what you have or like.

Thanks

UPDATE

Installed the Adventure Tech Mirror Extenders, using the OEM Dl650a mirrors. (Have the Ram Ball option on mine)
note: I had to loosen/not remove the Givi screen to install them.
5 minute ride shows how great they increased the rear view.
Will post again with comments once I put some time with them.

Adventuretech mirror extenders: I seem to have less buffeting with these on.

Mirror extenders for a wider view and reduced buffetting. Aprilia mirrors for reduced buffetting.

I voted both, but ended up selling the mirror extenders and now just use the Aprilia mirrors. Can see fine without the extenders.
