Lowers won't do a thing for the air hitting your head, I know, I have them. The notch in the windshield solves the low pressure area that lowers usually help on. The buffeting is just the result of ONLY dirty air hitting your head and not the rest of your body. The tall shield eliminates all the buffeting but it's hard to get past the looks, it kills the lines.
I just got the 11" and 13" Cee Bailey shields to see which work the best while still letting me see over it. I suspect the 11" for me @ 5'9" tall but people in the 6' range would probably want to 13" or even 15" to get it tall enough to throw the air over your head and clear up the buffeting.
BTW, the buffeting with the stock shield is no where near as bad as on a stock H-D Street or Road Glide with their stock shields so it's all relative.
