    The REAL One

    posted by MrDaveS on 09/30/2012 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    DX shipped the real RMA version, with the white oval on the left unlike the picture, the fake ones are not fluxed, therefore perform poorly I had bought 1 from a local store and it looks like the one in the picture and it's not fluxed therefore it performs ...
    Cons:
    The plastic goes malleable after heating for a short while, i guess that's a minor flaw

    Solder Wick review

    posted by CataVP on 02/16/2012 Certified Owner

    Involvement:Expert (understands the inner workings) - Ownership:more than 1 month

    Pros:
    It is a cheap solder wick . It is easy to use and can be great if you do a little trick. What can I say I bought 2 at this price you won't find better
    Cons:
    The solder won't stick to it so you need to use the soldering iron on it a bit longer then it should.

    Can't beat it

    posted by rndhg1vom24e7 on 06/25/2011 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    Works fine. Heck of a lot cheaper than my on line electronics supplier and a good brand too. I got two of these for far less than one of my supplier's same product. The wick has good flux in it -- which means it sucks up lots of solder without excessive heat.
    Cons:
    I didn't buy three? I can't think of anything negative about Goot desoldering braid.

    Good quality, does the job

    posted by notexa on 04/18/2011 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    - Good packaging, the wick comes out easily. - The wick is covered in flux, this makes it easy to remove solder. Most budget wicks don't have this (or at least not enough) - Good suck capacity, the wick can take a lot of solder per inch.
    Cons:
    We need longer wicks of this quality (not really a negative, I know)

    This stuff is amazing!

    posted by legendofpedro on 04/16/2011 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    Removes solder amazingly well. The flux that it is pre-impregnated with work well and is easy to clean up with a solvent such as isopropyl alcohol.
    Cons:
    None. Just remember to buy a few rolls; the only con is when you run out!

    posted by recluse on 03/10/2010 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    This is about the best solder wick you can buy. I've been and electronics Tech for 22 years and have used a great variety of different brands, Goot is as good as it gets. The copper braid was perfect and un-oxidized out of the pack, and was covered with flu...
    Cons:
    none, get it if you need to remove solder with precision
