Pretty good soldering wick – Goot Desoldering Wick Remover (2.5mm x 1.5M) Reviews

posted by Otatiaro on 01/19/2010 Certified Owner

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

Pros:
It's a pretty good soldering wick. Not as efficient as pre-tinned wick but very usable.
Cons:
When used alone, it's not that good at catching solder because it's only copper. I use it along with some home-made flux (based on colophony violin rosin found here) and then it's far better.
Other:
Order at least 3 if you solder / desolder more than once a month. This thing depletes at an impressive rate.
Bottomline:
If you need it, this is it. Use solder flux to activate the full power of this solder wick.
