Pros:
-Cheap solder, can't go wrong there. You would normally pay around $10 to $20 for solder similiar to this locally, so this is really a good deal. -For an average "Do It Yourself" person, this solder gets the job done
Cons:
-This solder is a bit hard to work with. The solder doesn't seem flow as easily i thought it would. -This took quite a bit of time to melt with a 40watt soldering iron on a 20 gauge wire.
Other:
-Should have stated the type of solder as some people prefer different types. Lead or no lead? I still don't know. Probably not going to find out. -This would definitely be alot better if there was a thinner size for this solder.
Bottomline:
-If you need solder, get this as it is the lowest priced solder you can ever find.
