    what did you do to yours, just to try it out i just slightly bent the ends in on the bar!
    does seem to pull a little bit more water from the inside edge of the window.

    I have seen and heard a lot of windys recommending it but not done it yet.

    Its well worth it, doesn't work on all frames but most it does. Just bending the old way works almost as well but either way bend back too much causes drag so just watch for that.
