That's interesting. I have a Reserve and the Rain-X works fine for me. Now, I'm retired so have not been forced to drive in inclement weather, but I've been through a few rainstorms (and a number of uses of the wiper washer fluid) without problem.
This’s a common compliant on gen-2 CX-5. You can try to get a Bosch AeroTwin part # 3397014398 which comes with 24/18 pair. Bosch AeroTwin series are designed to exactly meet OEM specs, hence no special hook adapter is needed. Amazon has AeroTwin 3397014398 for $30.51 a pair with shipping.I've already swapped out the Mazda rubber inserts several times and I still get the judder. Is it a mechanical flaw with the rubber that it doesn't stay even but bends when the wipers are moving or does the cold affect them? I'm f-en sick and tired of this. New wipers should not be having ANY problems.
They may look similar as both of them are “beam” type wiper blade, but the hook-up part definitely is different. Bosch Envision comes with several hook-up adapters to fit different hooks of wiper arm, but AeroTwin comes with an OEM hook-up which fits specifically to OEM wiper arm. So Bosch AeroTwin part # 3397014398 will fit only Mazda’s new proprietary hook-up.That looks identical to the envision from what I can tell? Is it just the European branding for the same wiper?
Bosch AeroTwin said:Description
Outstanding visibility in any weather. Rain or snow. Day or night. Bosch Aerotwins innovative design and technological advancements provide excellent wiper performance.
Bosch Aerotwin wiper blades feature customized spring strips made of high-tech, Evodium steel. These spring strips ensure consistent high pressure across the entire length of the blades, pushing the blades on to the windscreen to avoid any wet patches during operation that could inhibit your vision and it does it all without juddering or squeaking.
Combined with an aerodynamic design that reduces windage, and a blended dual rubber compound with graphite coating, Aerotwin wiper blades provide the most silent operation possible while providing a clean consistent wipe.
Vehicle-specific pre-mounted, OE-equivalent adapter makes installation simple and easy - no searching for the right adapter or additional assembly necessary.
Yeah, I don't mind snapping on the right adapter if it fits. It does. I have the Envision, and I've tried the Trico. They both seem good to me. My problem is that I've treated my windshield with Aquapel, which works great for water beading/shedding, but seems to increase the COF between the rubber and windshield so the wipers make noise or even judder if it isn't very wet. And I like to run my wipers if there is a single drop on the windshieldThey may look similar as both of them are “beam” type wiper blade, but the hook-up part definitely is different.

Of course the biggest difference is the price as the Envision is twice as more expensive than the AeroTwin!
Same for me. I applied RainX to my then new 6's windshield and regretted it right away. Wiper blades stuttered and bounced. Hard no!
That makes a lot of sense. Will try to remember and inspect for that next time.
In this case, it's Rain-X, IMO. ALWAYS had this issue. I now use the 12 month TW ceramic product. No issues, and the car looks great, and the glass sheds water pretty decent.

I'm pretty sure Uno uses Turtle Wax Ice Seal n' Shine. It's recommended by many pro detailers on YouTube as a great option for most people. Super easy to apply compared to a typical wax product, and more durable than most other spray wax products like it.Which Turtle Wax product? This one?
