i absolutely hate those things. a lot of newer vehicles with only like 5-10K miles roll in on those to walmart and need them replaced. they dont seem to hold up very well here in Nebraska. i dont know why.
im running just a regular Anco in mine, and have had no problems what so ever. Awesome blades and less than 4 bucks a piece.
It is the same size (20in), so it cleans the same area. I got them only for their look as my car is 2mo old. Living in SoCal i cant say much about how good or bad they work 'til what, December? They did fine in the light drizzle that we had last couple of mornings. They seem not to make any noise against the glass. Love the way they look.
