I have the michelin version and I'm not that impressed seeing as how they cost $15 each. The passenger side wiper doesnt touch the windshield so it leaves a spot with water, not a big deal because it isnt in my line of sight but annoying none the less. And last but not least they say they are good in all weather but when it snowed large chunks of ice formed on them and eventually broke one of them! luckily walmart replaced it

Pay attention to the reviews of brands posted (I don't recall mine, but I'll check to see if there'* any visible markings on them), and the GENERATION of the car they are tested on.

There are differences in windshield design/shape posted here. 92-99 are quite different than 00 and newer, and different brands may favor different years.

EDIT: Mine are ANCO, and work great with snow, ice, and rain (2 winters) on the 92-99 windshield.

I'm gonna pick a set up at Wally-World this week. I'll repost what I think of them. I will buy the Rain-X version.

I have the Anco blades as well, they work perfect at highway speeds while down pouring. I have not driven fast enough to lift the wipers away from the windshield yet.

I have the $15/wiper Bosch wipers, but as for those Rain-X very windshield wipers you're asking about, I've witnessed them in a Bonneville working during a downpour. My recommendation is GET THEM!!! They work too well and leave no streaks. I could hear the rubber blades scraping the windshield each time they shot across because the glass was so dry from the last swipe. They're nuts. I've seen many other windshield wiper types lift in heavy winds, and it seems it'* due to weak wiper arm springs.

never heard of those b4 but i can easily say that i first spray my windows with rain-x liquid spray and then wipe the windows with rain-x wipes to get off all the excess over spray and i can easily drive at speeds of 75-80 mph on the high ( when safe ) and not even need to use my wipers at all. which my wipers are aftermarket double balde ones..
but still i never had to use the wipers as long as i owned the car...

rain-x for life.........
