Screens

After a 3 day ride last week came to the decision I need a larger screen on the Wee to avoid the buffeting I am getting at highway speeds.
from what I can see I probably have 3 options in ascending dollar value
.laminar lip
.Madstad bracket with existing screen
.madstad bracket and larger after market screen
I am 6 feet tall riding a 2011 Wee.
Can anyone tell me from their experience which of these options was effective for them.

Life is too short to ride shit bikes.

Madstad bracket is a good option with any winshield since it gives you ability of adjusting the angle of it. I use few windshield depends of the weather and distance I'm riding, but Madstad with all of them.

I've used a Givi on a Madstad bracket--works very well. A CalSci without the Madstad didn't work as well. There are so many options--are there any bad aftermarket choices?
