Have you tried a small windshield?

Has anyone tried a small windshield like the Flyscreen or switchblade from national cycle or any other product similar to that size? If so how does it do against wind on highway? I just don't really like the look of any of the windshields. I want as small as possible while still retaining functionality (thats a word right?). thanks

I have a small cheap handlebar mounted one from JC Whitney. I think it was under 70 bucks. It does help. Its no substitute for a full size model but I really am trying to avoid making my bike look like everyone elses Harley esq bike.
I really need to update my pics but you can sort of see it here.

Look into Windvest. they are a little pricey, but I really lke it because it just cuts the wind away from my face and chest without changing the look of the bike.

I have a Pop Top from Memphis shades. I really like it but it doesnt do the job of a fullsize one. It is enough to break the wind from your chest on the highway but that is about it. You can get smaller but this one is a quick detach also.

I have the National Cycle Deflector tinted version. Big enough that it blocks most of the wind to my chest and face, but doesn't take too much away from the looks/lines of the bike.
