Difference in rollbar stiffness

I'm considering getting an M1 Hard Dog Hardcore Hardtop bar and was wondering what the difference it makes to get a single-diagonal, double-diagonal, or X-Brace bar. Anybody care to shed some light on the subject?

Single/double/X diagonal makes no difference at all.

Double diagonals were developed because people didn't like having a single diagonal cutting through the middle of the rear view; the double diagonals cut the corners off instead. But it's personal preference... I find the single less intrusive. People also like the symmetry of the double diagonal. The single diagonal is 5-10lb lighter...

The weak point of any bolt-in roll bar is the fact that it's bolted in. Double diagonals and X-braces aren't going to be appreciably safer.
