Involvement:General (knows how to use it) - Ownership:more than 1 month

Pros:
--> Very cheap stuff -->Becomes very handy if you need to remove solder from PCB for example whan you changing components. -->good packing which keeps it dust and dirt free.
Cons:
-->Does not contain flux - the best way is to cover small piece of this with flux using your soldering iron just before you want to use it. -->The copper wires could be thinner and more dense - it is quite stiff and does not absorb all the solder.
Other:
Warning - copper is high temperature conductive and the wire gets very hot after a while
Bottomline:
Good stuff but i prefer vacuum de-soldering.
