They're all pretty much the same. Key is to replace them every 6-12 mos.

There was a Consumer Reports test a little while back that came to the same conclusion if you can find it.

I bought some fancy-shmancy super duty silicone wiper blades (don't recall the brand). They seemed to have a lot more 'drag' - especially on intermittent (when the windshield is not soaking wet) which slowed down the wiper speed. I won't buy them again.

IMO there are better uses for silicone...
