Extremely little. They also say that chrome cages blend into your vision better than White/Black/Gold masks.

I have rarely found a difference. Even Cat's Eye Vs. Straight bar seems to have little effect on my performance. I can see the puck a little better from afar, but have a harder time when it's in clsoe with Cats Eye.

Any goalie won't notice a difference between a flat bar or a round bar right in front of their nose.

Also, who ever said that the flat bar is more designed to stop the puck than deflect it made me chuckle. If it's hitting that spot on your mask, you're only hoping that it doesn't hurt and that you'll be able to track it afterwards. It's not exactly a spot you try to make a controlled stop with.
