I only had to use it a couple times, sometimes when melting the solder an oil or something would get on the pin and it'd repel the solder. I don't believe my solder has flux in the middle, also I'm primarily reusing the current solder rather than replacing the old solder. Another thing I don't think I've added to the page yet is that with a ~13W soldering iron if it is held at the end of the pin for about 15 seconds the solder which holds the pin is melted, I add another 5 seconds just to be safe. This way the boards don't have to be pulled to resolder them.
