Rain-X Latitude
 
I was wondering if anyone has used the Rain-X Latitude wiper blades and are they worth the cost? I have been using the Weatherbeater series for a few years now and the work well and last about a year or so with proper cleaning and care.

I have them on the truck now and Personally I dont like them. If you want a nice set go with Bosch Icons. I love them and all the LH guys swear by them. I'll be picking up a set for my truck soon.

I have the Latitudes on mine and they have worked well, worth 20$ I guess

Not around me.

I was researching this last week and from all the reviews I read the Bosch Icon's seem to be the favorites. I found them on Amazon for like $18.99 each with free shipping and then there's a $15 mail in rebate so it's actually a pretty good deal.

Ive had the icons on my car for about 2 years and they still work very well. Luckily I can just get them at my local auto parts store.

I love RainX as well but I've noticed that the aerodynamics of the new ram (as compared to the old '98 Dakota) doesn't put as much air flow on the windshield. I used to not have to use the wipers from about 35 MPH on up. Now, I have to hit the momentary and/or use the intermittent wipers up until about 50 or 55MPH! I'm not complaining - Just noticing.

Sounds like I need to try the Bosch Icons next time around. I tried their Microedge blades some years ago and wasn't at all pleased with them, so I've avoided the brand since then. The Rain-X Weatherbeater blades have done well, especially for $9 blades.
