a solder in convinient package – 1mm*1-Meter Rosin Core Solder Reviews

Involvement:General (knows how to use it) - Ownership:1 day to 1 week

Pros:
the main advantage of this item is it's package. it is very convinient: you just pull it from the tube in such amount as you need. no more leftovers or melted in mass solder as with simple wire without a package. the thickness of solder is good for small appliance (circuit boards and wires less then 0.5mm^2)
Cons:
it says that it is rosin core, but i couldn't see it. it looked as a solid wire without any rosin inside to me. the claimed length of 1 meter is either not very much. it won't last long if you use it regulary.
Other:
Bottomline:
it is a solder in very convenient package. and even if it doesn't contain any rosin in it, it's not a big deal, cause you commonly use an extra flux while soldering.
