"Best" is all opinion,and we all know what they say about that!
I've tried lots of sets and found that Rain-x have done the best for me so far-the worst I found were Trico-skipped right out of the box-not cool.

Thumbs up

I've been a trico neoform guy for quite a while now but the last time I tried the 'Trico Tech Beam Blades'. I guess they're new and came out in late 2009. They're nice and beefy and they also have a new off-set mounting system that allows the wiper arms to sit ever so slightly lower. They look and work great - so far so good. Easy install. Got them online.

I just put a set of Rain X Latitudes on, they were pricey, $19.99 each, but Pep Boys had a mail in buy one get one free coupon. The are soft and conform to the windshield nicely. No skip or chatter. I had severe rain since I installed them as well as a few snow storms, and they have performed well.
