There is little to say here. If you work on printed circuit boards, you know the need to remove small amounts of solder for component replacement or construction errors. Solder wick is flux-impregnated copper braid that sucks up molten solder in small quantities. It is not useful for removing large quantities of solder from applications other than electronics work.

All solder wick is about the same. This one works as well as any and is reasonably inexpensive. It comes on a small plastic reel containing 5' of material--plenty to last a long time.

Keep it enclosed in the container when not in use and handle the bare braid as little as possible. Contamination of the wick will greatly lessen its effectiveness.

Truth be-told, - and this may seem a little stupid at first - I buy this product fro the packaging alone ... let me explain ... the patented plastic reel this copper wire comes on is the most excellent ear-bug headphone holder ever! All I add is one hole punch from a standard notebook punch for the jack.

I have tried all kinds of ear bud holder, this is fast to wind up, holds untangled in your pocket, adjusts to any length and unwinds fast enough to answer the phone - just hold the center ring between thumb and index finger - and pull the ear buds off the reel!

(Yes, I recycle the copper wire - I do so little actual de-soldering these days).

This was my first time using a de-soldering wick and I was skeptical. But boy does it work great. Just place on a part to de-solder and place your soldering iron directly on top. Pull up after a few seconds and ta-da! 95% of the old solder is gone. Works like a charm!

The braiding on this wick is very loose. I'm 2M trained and this wick does not cut it for me. I apply flux to the wick and area to be desoldered and when you go to lightly press on the wick it just pushes itself apart. When you try to slide the wick under the iron it just comes aprt easily. It works, but not to my satisfaction. I'm actually buying the brand I use at work. I didn't see the brand the first time I shopped because it didn't have any ratings.

I've tried wicks and pumps ("solder suckers") and the pumps are better, faster, easier 90% of the time.

Wicks seem to have a mind of their own. Sometimes they'll happily soak up a bunch of solder and sometimes they seem to not feel like wicking anything today.

Occasionally you need this. It's great in a space too tight for a solder sucker tip. It's great for cleaning up solder that has covered over a through-hole.

Not the best wick I've seen, but definitely works to remove old or too much solder. I like that it wasn't pricey. Helped my fox my Samsung 40" tv power supply capacitors. Tv works better than ever now

I have to say I got two of these and gave one to a friend to try, we both came with the same conclusion that this product does not perform as well as others. I personally have tried the blue label and green labeled wicks and for what ever reason the blue worked very well but the green did not. I was under the impression that it was a size difference as I think blue was wider but it did work. So from what I've experienced go buy the blue and run away from the green. I had no wicking at all no matter the temp on my iron and had even damaged some traces on a board trying to get this stuff to work. Just my experience maybe I got a bad batch. Good Luck to those who buy.
