Ive used the Rain-X ones on my old car, they work really well, no streaks and they last for a long time. I bought some Bosch Marathon's which appear to be a lot like the Icon's but are 5 bucks cheaper and are sold at Walmart. They work well too, I don't have any complaints. I guess time will tell if they hold up the first time they are run through some freezing conditions. When I picked them up I noticed that Walmart sells a Michelin brand curved blade design wiper for like 12 bucks. They looked to be a little beefier than the Marathons but I decided to go with Bosch because I've had good luck with their old style wipers.

I used bosch and a autozone wiper for the passenger side and the bosch started streaking within a month. The autozone one still worked great. To find out according to what a employee said about autozone brand is its actually made by rain X and its cheaper. So i usually buy them as they last 2-3 months.

If anyone else wants an opinion I have had Trico Neoforms on my blazer for close to 2 years and they havent failed yet. I live in western NY and we get some heavy snow. I have also went mudding with them and they are GREAT! Granted they are like 30 bucks a pop up here, I swear by these ones.
