If so, does it really make a noticeable difference in the handling for the car?

Yes, using a Corksport RSB one right now on stiffest setting. Makes it handle like a sports sedan on the street, very fast turn in and little body roll. It seems to be able to induce oversteer more easily now. Will autoX it later at the end of the month for a better feel.

Do you also have the front strut tower bar? I have that currently and just that addition transformed the car’s handling, looking forward to getting the RSB.

Yes. I have both. RSB will make it feel completely different in a good way. You may have seen my comment on Zeffer's review, but pls check with Corksport before you buy to ensure no interference.

I shot them an email regarding it so I’ll let you know what they say.

I also have had both for over a year now. The front strut tower bar made a very slight difference but the rear sway bar (I started on medium setting, then moved to stiffest) made a much greater difference in improved cornering with no deterioration in ride quality. I also upgraded the RSB end links with Moog parts because they were heavier duty than OEM and have grease fittings on both ends for long service life. Every oil change the shop lubricates all 6 fittings so the bushings will last (I keep my cars a long time).

Do you have a link to those parts? Also is your RSB from CorkSport?

Yes, the rear sway bar is from CorkSport. I liked the fact that the rear sway bar mounting brackets had grease fittings after bad experience with bushing wear on a prior application. The link to the sway bar endlinks is: https://www.moog-suspension-parts.com/products/mazda_mazda_6_2014
They are the ones on that page manufactured by Moog for $29.42 each, there are some cheaper ones made by others there as well that appear to be less robust. I searched for 2014 Mazda6 but doubt there is any difference for your 2015 (double check anyway). Hope this helps.

Thank you very much, I’m waiting on CorkSport’s response to my email but I really am looking forward to purchasing it!
