As far as I observe closely while they are working (yeh I do pay attention on the traffic too at the same time ), they flip accordingly but as soon as i cross certain speed or if there is no enough water on the windsheild, it streaks and chatter like hell..... I had a new set of Bosch Micro Edge excel recently, maybe its true they r overrated...

This weekend I will experiment with the arm angle.

Have you ever seen those "whipies" they sell at auto parts stores for like $.50? They lube the wiper blades so they dont chatter. This and or Rain X may help since I feel that some rubber or whatever compond they may use now can grab the windshield and not slide as well as we are used to. Just a thought..
