So I was wondering what everyone prefers . I use Bosch blades with rain x bug cleaner. In the summer the winter Bosch heavy duty blades with rain x
de icing solvent. What does everyone else use?

Bosch. Everything else I've tried is sub par.

Bosch ICON


Even PIAA?
Yep, only ones I've ever had luck with are bosch. Could be the environment where I work, but wipers are endlessly being replaced and the longest lasting ones I can get are bosch

Good to know. I bought a bum set of ICONs off Amazon that Bosch replaced that have been working great so far. Lasted forever on my last car.

My dad's philosophy is to buy the cheapest and replace as necessary. They'll work fine, but for how long? If performance drops to 50% after limited use what's the point. Then there's safety too so in this case I think it's worth it.

My dad always said you get the best item for your money and it will last as long as it's properly cared for

There are some people who swear by the trico stuff. Especially the higher end. I've just not had luck. There is another thread here where several members sing the praises of them.

I work in a grimy crap hole that does a ton of metal work for the automotive industry and by default the oils and magnesium just get into the air. It is likely part of my issue, but I can't say for sure.

I worked in a forge for 15 years and we lubed our dies with graphite and industrial ammonia so I'm feeling your pain bro
