PROS
Good value Sturdier coils Easier to use than round wire
CONS
Reel needs a magnet to stop spontaneous de-spooling Screws on some attys too small to trap wire
There is a definite improvement in vapour and flavour due to the increased area in contact with the wick, not earth shattering but noticeable. Coils are a bit sturdier when wicking and rewicking - coils with round wire (especially at 30 AWG) often break during this process or get deformed and pop when dry burning. Coils are also longer than round wire equivalent, so may not fit easily into all attys. Trapping wire on attys with tiny screws (e.g. KF3) is tricky.

PROS
Fits into a drill Hardwearing heads
CONS
Square ends
These are great little heads, useful for small objects, though the square ends make it difficult to get into nooks and crannies. I have been using these to polish PEI tanks and drip tips and they are doing a good job. They also are quite hard and quite hard wearing so you can apply some force to them without them tearing up. Much easier than polsihing by hand.

PROS
Nice size for small components Flows nicely
Good for smaller joints and SMD work. Probably could get cheaper elsewhere but 10m of solder is going to last a long time so no worries.

PROS
Accurately dispenses flux Excellent for desoldering and reflowing
CONS
Can dry out
One of caps had come off in transit and dried out the tip - revived with a few drops of isopropanol. Pens are very good for dispensing flux just where needed and doesn't leave too much mess after soldering.

PROS
Good quality Snaps together easily and firmly
Used to convert battery powered LED strings to USB. Just enough room for a current limiting resistor within the case. Easy to solder and close.
