Has anyone seen those Motomaster \"Reflex\" wipers from Canadian Tire that have a really thin flexible arm? Wondering if anyone\'s tried them and if they are any better than regular wipers?

I haven\'t tried them, but I am using their Teflon blades. They work very well.

They grip very well. So far they are good.. The only problem is that in very cold conditions with slush hitting it. Just like any other wipers. You will see dirt on the windshield, which you need the washer fluid to clean them.

Hope that helps out

Yeah, I actually already picked up a pair. So far they are working great, but they\'re still new. I really like how they are a much lower profile than a normal wiper. Much more aerodynamic and unobtrusive. Although they are more expensive, so far I recommend them.

I guess you can\'t change the rubber on these when they wear out?

They are actually all season, in terms of changing them...Not sure. If you can use it all season long....the reflex is just change in your pocket. I highly recommend them.

i picked up reflex blades back in October and they work great. Too bad they don\'t make a 13\" one the fits our back window

I\'m guessing the Reflex ones are more made for the winter since they don\'t lift and streak as much.... and the Teflon ones are more for the spring and summer as it helps better with the rain... I\'m using the Teflon ones right now and they seem to be working fine

I only have the 21\" one on right now, since they were all out of 19\".

It\'s awesome.

I have the reflex wipers. I got them before Canadian Tire started airing the commercials and started selling out.

I have 22\" and 20\". They work great. Only thing I notice is that the driver side likes to throw water on the passenger side on the reverse wipe. Its not a big deal though.

So you opted for 1 size up from the wiper size standard on the Mazda3 (21\" and 19\"). How do you find that the 22\" and 20\" fit and how is the wiping coverage? Been waiting 2 weeks now to find the correct sizing in Sudbury so if I know other sizes work, that will provide more options. Thanks...

they fit fine.

the tip of the passenger side wasnt touching as much so I just rubbed my fingers on it to bend it slightly.

no complaints.

Con: A little bit noisy!

Great Wipers if you have the cash!
