This is why flux is super important, especially with newer solder. The new stuff is absolutely horrible, and even my best brand of flux and a ton of prep work on my end... Makes it barely acceptable to me. :-/
I have some old rolls that flowed perfectly when new and shiny and now that they are old and dull they suck.
