Windshield wipers

What kind do you use and where do you get them. I can't seem to find any except on-line. And so far the $15 wipers online are not impressive!

I use Silblade. You will have to order them online, but they are worth it.

Scrubblade. Pretty great for our bug-magnet windshields.

Picked mine up on Amazon.

OEM = 15" (actually about 14 3/4") but 16" will work fine without going outside the glass.

Using Trico Flex blades on mine...16".

I ordered a set of Everblades last week. Heated blades and arms.
Tried the Rainx but haven't been impressed.
