Thanks for that! I'm always looking for a bargain and might have fallen for a "knock-off" Rain-X.

I've only used it once in my life and lost the bottle. I applied it to my 92' Bonneville, when the stuff came out. It beads the water really well. What in the heck do these Rain-X Wiper blades really do as I'm unfamiliar with them ? Do they have a resivour built in them that slowly apply's Rain-X fluid to your windshield ?

The wiper blades have nothing to do with the fluid, they are just a bracketless design like Bosch Icon.

Hmmmmm...........I just buy the cheapest ones that are
on sale when I need them. I use 2 sets. The regular
ones for summer and the winter ones that are fully
encased in rubber for snow and ice season...........
Been wanting to try the heated ones on my plow truck
for winter use but the $75 bucks is steep !!!!

Instead of offering snide comments, why not just respond with your experience, or let others who have used them respond? There are plenty of people who would like genuine feedback on rocky's question.

PIAA had some great blades on the market a few years ago. Some of the guys I knew in SCCA Rally Racing used them with great sucess.
#46 of 86 My take on the one piece Rain X blades.

Love 'em. Got them buy one get one free after rebate. Had them on since Oct. 06 through a nasty Missouri winter. The one piece design worked perfectly though an apocalypic record ice storm. I have a thing about good wipers and I am happy with them.
The only thing I will say is they are not as aerodynamic as I thought. Under some windy conditions when driving over 65, the right one skips slightly.
I think they look cool, too. Tried the one piece from anco for the other car and they are not as good, and took them back and got more of the Rain X.
