Desoldering tool
#8
those spring loaded solder suckers are not the best idea.
thier diameter profile reduce your visual view and the tip lenght reduces your reach.

I to use solder wick but i am rarely impressed by it because of the long period of time you spend putting heat on the object/area/solder run. it does have its application though but on touchy areas i am forced to be very careful with it

the long nose hot air variety with a foot pedal are best. they wont be 20$ though but they are the best.
Best meaning they do the correct desolder job for the application. you melt and suck out the solder in one motion with the absolute least amount of time and heat on a pieces part.

for onezie twozie desolder tasks i would be all over a manual desolder sucker cheapy spring loaded one if the sucker nozzel was longer and better than what they make now.

perhaps you could modify your manual spring loaded one with a hollow metal tube tip that would give you a skinny 3'' reach ???

still the disadvantage is you have to come into the work area with two things,, the solder gun to heat and the sucker to suck.
