    Pros:

    Lots of solder!

    Cons:

    Too thick for my tastes

    OtherThoughts:

    Highly active flux for the core, so don't breathe the fumes. The positive is that it really does work quite well. First few tries I got cold solder joints, but that's probably because I put wwaaayyy too much on or maybe there wasn't enough flux but I'm not sure as that was a one off. Consequent joints worked just fine. I also find it a little thick I'm used to the .5mm stuff but I couldn't find it here.

    You can't beat the price anywhere for this amount of solder. It arrives just as the picture shows, no seal or bag.

    I believe others have reported that the flux in it is insufficient, but I did not find that to be the case. The description does say that it's 2% flux, but the picture shows 1.5% on the label and I can confirm that mine says the same thing.

    Bottomline:

    You'd be crazy to buy solder elsewhere if these dimensions meet your needs.
