Novice user here. – Goot Wick Soldering Remover (2.5mm x 1.5M) Reviews

Involvement:Novice  (still getting used to it) - Ownership:more than 1 month

Pros:
Braided copper wire. As stated in the description.... that is accurate.
Cons:
Just didn't do the job that it is supposed to do. I did say at the beginning I am a novice user in this area. I generally just make do with other methods but thought I would give this stuff a go, but I was sadly disappointed
Other:
I don't have any. Maybe the expert user will read this review and laugh... sorry. But I like items that just work and this one didn't.
Bottomline:
First time user to wicking solder away from old soldered items. I wasn't impressed. It really didn't do the job. On thinking about this. I would perhaps use a flux on the item and heat it up to prepare the surface for the solder to run into the wick. Shouldn't the item just do that??? Anyway I think that would improve the result. A wire with multiple thin strands and with flux would do better then this item for me.
