So I am slightly OCD about by windshield. I don’t like dust or splotches on it, and so I run my windshield spray every time I get in my truck. Because of this, a while back I splurged on a set of the fancy windshield wipers, the kind that are one solid bar instead of the spring frame, and have “graphite coating” and all sorts of “features,” such as the much touted “work great in the ice and snow!” They worked ok, I guess, though the passenger side one didn’t touch the windshield at the very end of the wiper when in the off position. They worked ok, that is, until the first time I hit ice and snow. Then they went straight from “graphite coated rubber” to “you’d be better off with a wet sock.” And they stayed that way, even when there was no ice or snow or even cold involved. Spend twice as much money, get half as much return? No thanks. I have since upgraded back to the cheapest traditional metal springy kind, and I won’t be returning. Sure, I know they’ll only last a few months, but at least they’ll work, dammit.
