Default what kind of desoldering wick to buy?

I'm putting together a parts order from digikey and i'd like to pick up some new desoldering wick.Theres so many different kinds and sizes.What do you guys prefer for car amplifier repairs? I used some stuff that i picked up from radio shack and man it was bad.I'm hoping its not all like that

Digikey CW10-25-ND gets my vote.

The RS stuff is almost always old and oxidized. It generally won't work unless you use it with a liquid flux.
