Windshield Wipers

I've got really bad wipers on the wrangler right now. I wanna know what people have found out works best. Any suggestions would be great!

I switched to Silblades a few months ago and they're great. The only thing I found was that there was a little too much resistance if the windshield wasn't totally wet, causing the blades to skip - so I've bought some wiper snuggies to improve the pressure of the blades on the windshield but haven't had a chance to install them yet. I probably would have needed that with any new blades, I just suspect my old ones were so ragged they weren't providing any resistance at all!

someone on here suggested piaa wipers so I bought them. They work 10x better than any other blade I've tried. They dont even chatter a bit even on a 100% dry window. I'm sold on them for life.
