it's really coming down tonight so I decided to stop living with the small streak left by the middle of the windshield wiper (drivers side more so than the passengers side). The point of streaking is exactly where the arm meets the blade.

After installing a RainX Latitude 24" it's streaking in exactly the same place but now the streak is 'wider'.

that's nuts! a quick observation seems arm pivot point is not flat against the windshield but now sure why this would happen. Any suggestions?

can a 26" blade fit on the drivers side?

go with shorter wipers esp on the rt side. i use i think a 20" on the rt and 24 on the Lt but would have to take a tape messure to check.

Could it be that you have crap on the glass?
I get a build up of wax on the car's windscreen, and have to clean it off with an abrasive type cleaner.

Once cleaned off, the windshield is MUCH better.
