Item not as described. – 0.6mm Solder Wire (200g) Reviews

Involvement:Expert (understands the inner workings) - Ownership:more than 1 month

Pros:
Well, it was cheap, and my colleagues nolonger bother me for solder wire.
Cons:
Absurd level of impurity; Even the smallest joint produced dross that needs scraping off with a hot iron.
The rosin core (if there was any) does not appear to run through the entire length of the spool.
Other:
The spool I recieved has a sticker that reads "20046003".
Bottomline:
If you need solder and don't mind using flux go ahead and buy it, with paste (sku.7923) it worked fine for me, but was a nightmare for my colleagues who tried to use it without adding flux themselves.
