Seems like the place you need it most isnt a size anyone makes..

Blade is a solid 'beam' none of the flex braces.. does a much better job of cleaning because it mainains a constant surface contact and doesnt flex up and down as much

so far i've been really impressed with the good job my windshield wipers do with factory blades - of course, mfr date for mine is 9/09 so the blades might not do so well after they age - in any case, i don't plan on changing the style blade i use until the current ones give up -

Just replaced the factory front wipers last week with the rain-x contour type wipers, way better, but then again new wipers are always great aren't they. I too wondered about the rear. I'm thinking that a refill is the only fix for those. What size is it like less then 12"/.

Its an 11" blade.. and I haven't found a single manufacturer who is making a beam for it yet.. sigh

Not by much.. unless it is longer past the arm connection than below.. otherwise you'd hit the pivot point.. and the arm strength is already bad enough with a normal size blade

just a thought... can one of those blades be cut down to size? I've never dissected one to know if they'd stay in one piece if the ends were cut off.
