New vs old Bosch wiper blade for 300e(Bosch#40724)

Just installed the new type wiper.It seems a little bit flimsier than the older type with the same part #.
Older Bosch has assymmetrical lengths and the instructions at back of wrapper showed that prior to 87,the 3 holed side of blade should be at the outside,:;after 87 the 4 holed side should be at the outside perimeter.
Now the new Bosch blade is symmetrical with the universal clip in the centre,I found the wiping radius is perhaps 1 cm or 0.4 in shorter than the old.
Has anybody found this?
