  • Lead free solder is indeed crap (and has caused me plenty of headaches), but I agree entirely with their statement "you wouldn't want to use this in production". Unless you don't plan on selling your product in certain regions of the world, you should avoid using things that will make your product RoHS non-compliant (i.e. lead).

    Seeing as they do prototype and sell RoHS compliant boards, I'm pretty sure Sparkfun has dealt with their fair share of lead free issues as well.

No public wish lists :(
