Fairly good desoldering wick. – Goot Wick Soldering Remover (1.5mm x 1.5M) Reviews

Pros:
It's a good wick with many thin copper strands. The price is very good for something like this.
Cons:
This wick has none or allmost no flux in it, making it hard to get the solder to stick to it and start flowing with the capilary effect.
Other:
If you want this wick to work a lot better, just dip it in liquid rosin flux and let it dry before using it, it will work at least twice as good, probably better.
Bottomline:
This is great, get it if you need it, but grab one of sku.4697 and desolve it in about 50-100ml of cleaning ethanol to get liquid flux that you can dip your wick in to get better results.
