I purchased this pump after the one I got at RadioShack a year ago broke. The RadioShack pump broke because the part that stops the plunger at the end of its upward travel is made of plastic. In this item it is made of aluminum, and I believe it will prove more durable.
Compared to the RadioShack model, the tip on this one has a bit larger opening (3.6mm vs 2.6mm). The parts from the remains of the RadioShack pump are interchangable with this one, including the tips. However, with the thinner tips the plunger rod can get stuck if there is any significant solder buildup. The plunger from the RadioShack model also fits, and swapping them solves the problem. So, if you're also replacing the same pump, you have that option.
However, the wider tip works fine most of the time, and will really only be a problem in tight spaces. Also, it can actually be an advantage in many situations.
So, this is a good, basic, solder sucker. It's even better if you are replacing a broken one from RadioShack, because you will already have spare parts.
I would recommend this item to anyone without hesitation.
FYI, the pump I received was blue in color (as stated in the item's description) not gold as pictured.
Things I like are the powerful suction, the clean design, and the quality of the components. It seems quite durable.
I like the aluminum body. It is solid yet lightweight. Also, the barrel can be unscrewed at both ends, so you could reverse it if you needed to.
I actually bought two of these so that I can have them at my workbench and in my toolbox.
As for usability, I like the diameter of the barrel. The plunger is easy on the thumb and the release button is well placed. This extractor seems to be made for large hands and you will find yourself reaching with your thumb to get to the plunger.
I do find the outside of the barrel to be a bit slick, but I am sure I will get used to it or use a bit of friction tape for a better grip.
Oh, by the way, it does a fine job of pulling solder from circuit boards! A worthwhile tool at a good price that I recommend to others.
