I purchased the VGs after reading a PIREP on the STOLSPEED site from another RV-6 owner. I wanted the extra margin of safety at critical AOA, and I feel they definitely soften the loss of lift. On the day of installation my clean power off stall went from a sharp break at 54 mph to a slow, mushing break at 49 mph. I was also hoping they would help me on cross wind landings. So far the biggest cross wind I have tried since installing them has been 8Kts and I thought they helped, but that could be confirmation bias on my part. I feel they definitely make the plane safer at stall speeds and were well worth it for my purposes. I was hoping to post some video from that day but haven't had time to edit it all together yet. I will probably do a post on them when I finish the video.
