Reminds me that Anco blades can no longer be flipped over. It used to be that the blades would get the "set" you refer to and all you had to do was stop and flip the blade over to eliminate the set causing the blade to bounce and stutter.sgilbert said:YES! Those are the ones I was referring to above. They were excellent when new, but make noise now with anything less than a full rain now.
The problem, I believe, is that they all take a "set" from lying on the windshield and then aren't perfectly perpendicular when needed.
BTW: They might be as much as 6 months old now.
No, it is a complete sytem, and the blade is also superior to any out there. You ONLY treat the windshield once a year ! Blade works all year long.sgilbert said:Looks like the PIAA blades depend on the beading treatment of the windshield and not on a superior blade.
