I tried it all the way up today, definitely better. Overall, I think it's a decent windscreen for the price, and as I said, knowing ahead of time about the "melting dash issue" I planned for it. I still think it works ok at the lowest position, but is better in the upper position. Somehow the middle just seems "meh." Sorry about your damaged dash, motorboy. Going back to the OP: after riding with mine a bit more, if I were your height, I would likely order the "tall" screen.
