The best thing about this solder wick is that it is very cheap in comparison to well known brands of solder wick, the build quality is also pretty decent as I expected.
Although it says it contains flux I have noticed it does not suck up solder too well, perhaps it is my soldering iron but it seems to be flux free to me or at least a rather inactive flux.
Solder wick is very handy for de-soldering parts that a solder sucker won't work on such as SMT stuff so you should always have some on hand. If you do a lot of de-soldering make sure you buy several rolls.
This is a very good deal, I recommend buying a few and soaking it in a good flux if possible then it is as good as many expensive solder wicks.
