Default Silicon Wipers

I read an ad today about silicone wiper blades that supposedly make water bead right off the windshield. Has anyone heard about these? They sound quite nice, and since I am due for new blades, I may just go for those.

I just got the TRICO Teflon Blades, part # 15-220.
They were smooth and quiet from the get-go.
Worth it to me in the Rainy City.
