Default Favorite Windsheild Wipers?

What are your favorite wipers to use?

It can be winter, summer and yearly don't matter.

Me personally I've been using the default ones, but it's time to upgrade because they don't do the best job.

I use the expensive ($35 a wiper) ice ones, at least for the plow truck but usually on all my cars. It really sucks when your wipers get iced up and froze. They then proceed to do more harm than good. These have a rubber jacket around the outside to keep the junk out.

I only bought one set, and that was 15 each and those were the motorcraft ones, they went to suckage after a week without ice. do your expensive ones still work if they go over ice? (I need to be able to have the wiper fluid come out but not have my wipers go. )

I recently went with the new style wipers, the ones that have the single solid spine in them and they work great. With the way weather is around here and all the dust, regular wipers start to streak really early, these single spine types don't.

Those are the same ones that I get. The RainX or whatever the hell they're called.

I use regular 16 dollar or so RainX wipers. They work pretty great.

I love the Bosch new style Icons but I can't find them anymore I have used the Rain X Latitudes but they tend to wear out faster.

i also use the single spline wiper now. well worth the price. but i had to teach my wife about wiper blades. i had a nice set that were $20 each on my car. one broke and my wife let the guy at auto zone sell her 2 $8 each cheap winter blades.

i was not happy i told her next time to just replace the one.
