    i was thinking soft would be better, due the the cold the rubber would be harder than normal

    Well, if your heavy handed then Hard rubber is better, if your gentle with your squeegee then soft is better.(sounds like a lot of inuendo there! :p)

    So it depends how you use it!

    I personally dont think weather effects the rubber on the glass, ie hard is better in winter and soft for summer, just dont think thats true.

    I also find hard lasts longer, as in doesnt get nicks and picks whatever in it, and the end of the rubber lasts longer then soft

    So there you go I actually tought you something there RC! :p
