Default Rain-X Latitude Wipers

Anyone try these out yet? I'm starting to need new wipers and wondered if they were worth trying.... ???

Those the ones with a single bowed spring support in them? One big curve? If so, I don't have the rain-x brand, but the same style on the Zilla. Very impressed so far. Perhaps the best I've owned. Been running them just over a year.

my brother had those ones on his maxima and they lift do to the excess plastic on top. It acts like a wing. I don't know if you can get them down here but up here in canada we have ones called reflex and they work great. same style of blade but with no wing

No 'wings' on mine, and they've been tested beyond reasonable speeds in safe circumstances.

Here'* a pic and a link I found on the interwebs:

Next time I see them, I think I'll buy them and give them a shot. Even if they suck, they're just wiper blades...

I have the same style, but the trico brand. I will NEVER go back to the old style. These windsheild wipers and some rain-x and water doesnt stand a chance
