60/40 2% Rosin Core Flux – 1mm*1-Meter Rosin Core Solder (3-Pack) Reviews

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

Pros:
It's 60/40, ideal for hobbyists (ROHS Solder can be a nightmare!)
I've been getting some good joints and beads with this solder, mind you I only used it for a couple projects (mainly to test it out)
Cons:
The cylinders come half full, some with more solder than others.
Price is not top notch, I can get these by almost the same amount of cash in almost any electronics store, however as everyone knows these are handy on a toolbox, not on the workbench -- If you solder a lot buy a spool!
Other:
The flux does not smell like rosin, in fact I've been wondering if it isn't in fact an acid flux.
It's actually got less flux than the regular "multi-core" you might be able to find somewhere else ( this is 2%, or so they say ) so regulate your temperature accordingly, or you'll need extra flux!
I've yet to test it's electrical properties compared to some good known brands though.
Bottomline:
Good enough to keep a couple of these in each toolbox, but the price is nothing special at all.
