Messed me up for years

  • Summary: Doing light soldering work for xbox controllers, arcade sticks and other miscellenous things I bought this as it was a required staple in a soldering kit. For years I thought I was just horrible. I would go to great lengths to get things right the first time, because unsoldering was my nightmare. Years later I find out it's because of this desoldering wick. It had no flux on it at all. Now that I know more and understand the need for flux, this is horrible.

  • Summary: This is absolute garbage. It does not work at all and will most likely ruin your board and components. I plan on returning mine to RS tomorrow for a refund. I'm using a Weller iron, and I usually use MG Chemicals brand desoldering braid, which by the way actually works very well.

Not enough rosin or flux

  • Summary: OK so I've prob bought 10 of these of the course of year and half.I will no longer buy any more because of the fact some work good and some are useless. Also pain in the butt going to store and have a kid look at you crazy when you ask for it. P.S. I worked for radioshack for 3 year :) Well this why the product sucks some aren't saturated with rosin flux so when you try use it the product doesn't suck up solder.
  • Pros: Easy To Get
  • Cons: Poor quality
