Low cost wick that does the job.
Saturated with no-clean RMA flux.
There are better brands available (but they also cost more).
In my profession I use desoldering braids frequently and after trying out many brands I have a favorite that I buy in bulk. This wick is not the best I’ve used but it’s also not the worst, it does the job fairly well and should be a good choice for the casual user. The residue from the no-clean flux can be left on the PCB after desoldering but I would personally have preferred a more active "must-clean" flux that would have provided better capillary action. For the casual user and novice I always recommend using wick over desoldering pumps, the recoil of a low cost pump can easily damage PCB tracks and isn’t as effective in removing parts from through plated holes as a desoldering wick. If you’re having problems removing a part with this product you can try and dip the wick (no pun intended)in some other flux that’s more active.
Fairly good desoldering wick that will work for most desoldering jobs.
