Default What do you think about this flux?

I'm definitely a newbie when it comes to using flux in the paste form. What is your opinion on this stuff which I'm currently using? Is there something similarly priced that you find better? Looking at general re-work on laptop boards.

I've not used the ChipQuick flux, but since I started to use Amtech-599 I've not needed to look for anything better.

Ok, I've ordered some of the 559 from Rossman. Stuff is expensive ($27shipped), so I hope it does wonders like most seem to think

Yes, from personal experience it's awesome stuff. One application lasts ages plenty of time for removal and refitting of components with hot air/soldering iron and messing around.
And it smells nice, not that flux/soldering fumes should be inhaled.
I pay around 18 for 10cc or 30 for 30cc delivered from the UK supplier.
