My local wallyworld has all the Icons marked down to $9.

Moved off to one side from the wiperbldes on the side of an end cap. One by my office had none, so YMMV

Good to know...I like Icons.
I will pop by a local WM if I get a chance, thanks!

Noticed this at Walmart earlier today but they didn't have my sizes in the Bosch.
They had "Scrubblade" brand blades for $7 that I picked up and seem okay so far.

Stopped by the big WM near my work and the Icons were off in a general clearance section, not even in automotive. Looks like they are dropping the Bosch line entirely and maybe replacing them with Trico?
They only had one blade that could have gone on the passenger side of my daughter's car, but it was an A (driver's side for Bosch) and I decided it wasn't really worth it. Looked like $4 off the original price.
I took a peek at the Tricos and it looked like their guide recommended a 24" blade for my driver's side that should be a 26"...maybe they just don't make them that long?

None that would fit either of my vehicles. Lots of the "OE" type. I need a 22a, 20b and 2 20a.
They had a bunch of the 20b, no 22 or 20a at all.
I know the "B" blade is supposed to be more curved than an "A" blade, but may work in an "A" application ("A" supposedly does not work well in the "B" position).
I think I am going to wait to see if they drop more in price then grab some for my truck. I usually use the Michilen blades from Walmart for like $6 each.

The Trico Ultra they have is awesome, and US-made smile

Too bad they stopped carrying the Trico Flex (made in Mexico, but still the best value in a good beam wipoer)

Yeah I think you are right about this. Only 24 inch available. I use a 26 inch wiper instead of the monster long 28 inch. You might could well use the 24. It maybe enough. My 26 wiper works just fine. I only lose 2 inches on the low side of it but it doesn't matter. I still have perfect vision in my field of view where it really matters.
