  • Pretty darn good

    Involvement:Expert (understands the inner workings) - Ownership:1 week to 1 month

    Pros:

    This is a better tip cleaner than the sponges I've used before - no water! The tip stays hot, so work goes faster and more evenly as a result.

    Cons:

    Doesn't come with a metal cup to anchor it. Definitely needs mechanical support to contain it. I used a glass ashtray.

    OtherThoughts:

    Another reviewer wrote "keep your pants on when soldering." I agree - it's important with this ball because it's springy and could fling a little ball of solder onto your lap.

    Bottomline:

    Two soldering "best practices" are to keep the tip clean and hot. This ball helps with both.
