Time To Replace Wiper Blades

The weather recently has made it clear it is time to get new wiper blades. Any recommendations as to a high quality replacement?

I bought some Silblades off Amazon.com for somewhere around $14 - they seem to work well and last longer than the Bosch blades I used to run.

Speaking of blades, does anybody else experience their wipers traveling beyond the stops when using the high setting? Mine hit the bottom edge of the window.

Anybody come up with a solution? Are the stops out of alignment?

Got new "wiper blade to arm thingy with new allen key set screw" the blades now stay where they are supposed to. RN has them, mine's is a 1985 but i think its the same in the newer trucks.
As far as blades, has anyone tried the rain-x ones? If they even fit?
