It all depends on the use.

Rubber can last a week, to ten minutes… All depends on what you’re using it for and what obstacles you encounter on the glass along the way.

I personally use Ettore rubber and Baron rubber for my wide body sorbo-like channels.

I’ve tried Unger soft and hard, they were good just didn’t last as long as my Ettore rubber.

Facelift is good, bought a couple 36" of those and I’m a fan of the durability.

Wagtail rubber was good in my wagtails, lasts long and has great results.

It’s a trial and error personal preference thing. Some say soft is good in the winter temps, I use Ettore hard year round with great results.

Ettore is simply the best there is. I also use some Sorbo wide body channels with Sorbo rubber. I bought a gross of 18" and 22" Sorbo rubber years ago so I will be using it up for many years to come.

Unger hard in the summer, Ettore in the winter for me

I do ettore all year long. But in the winter time, I’m careful to use the dextral side of the rubber. In the summer it doesn’t matter, but I prefer the sinistral side.

Thanks Jared you made me use google word search “Definition”!
