I think another thing that can contribute to streaky windshields is a pitted windshield (like mine - looks like it is covered with pollen when looked at from an angle) that collects road grim and oil from the road during routine driving. I periodically wash it down with isopropanol and then wipe the blade. I think the mono wiper is better than the standard type because for a brief instant during rain a standard passenger side wiper throws a huge amount of water right in your line of sight before the other wiper can clear it off.
