New Bosch wipers leave streaks

I had some michelen wipers that were showing wear after less than a year.

After a bunch of research I went and spent a bunch on a pair of Bosch Icon. Got the 19" recommended for both sides on my 2004.

Both driver and passenger leave streaks, on the right sides.

I cleaned the windshield thinking there was something on it. I even cleaned with alcohol.

I took a picture, it's hard to see, but it's the best picture I could get. The picture is with the windshield dry, as the wipers leave streaks to dry.

When wet they streak up and down.

Any ideas?

Re: New Bosch wipers leave streaks

I have a different solution.

The best wipers I have ever had were always the OEM wipers that came with a new vehicle. So, every September or October, I put on a new set of OEM refills. I clean the windshield with Windex, then with a clay bar using Mequiar's Quick Detailer as a lube, then with Invisible Glass cleaner. Tastes great, less filling.
