Question Windshield help/suggestions

I have a 2012 Road Glide Custom that has a Harley WindSplitter 12" shield that came on it.
It looks really good on the bike, but the wind buffeting is ridiculous over 50mph.
What are your suggestion for a better shield?
And I'm not really looking for the huge/tall Ultra glide types.
I've been reading all kinds of pros and cons on the Klock Works shields as well as the Freedom Shields and its pretty all over the place.
I'm 5'10" and the bike has 14" mini apes on it.
Thank in advance!!

LRS has periodic sales. You can pick it up for short money. I had a LRS on my 09 and have a Freedom on my 15. Form and function are superior on the Freedom. More money though.

I use both a 13 " Freedom and a Madstad. Believe it or not, the Freedom cuts the buffering and winds as well as the Madstad and gives better protection for my hands with 15" apes.
Very highly recommend the Freedom. Just make sure your apes clear the windshield lock to lock before you remove the film (Freedom has a great return policy).

I have a Klock Werks 14" Sprotsflair that I was using for a year or so but I have to tell you, the Long Ride Shields are great.

I purchased a 10" dark tint Stingray & I also purchased a 13" medium tint Stingray.

Both LRS's are great and you just can't beat the prices.

My sig picture down below shows the 13" LRS Stingray.

Good Luck

It's hard to beat the Madstad adjustable on the pre Rushmore bikes. My 13" Madstad works better than a 16" Wind vest windshield.
Bandit 7 and trainey like this.

2010 FLTRX , Stage 1, 13" Madstad, Mono tubes, SuperShox, Heritage style bars. Alpine CDE-HD149BT,Soundstream Picasso Nano Series PN4.520 , 5X7 and 6.5 Infinity Kappa speakers
If I have to explain ,you wouldn't under stand anyway.
