If you want to skip all the junk flux out there (at work I have tried 20+ different ones) and go straight to the best on earth then its Kester brand "Rework" style flux. You can get liquid style pens like I linked up in OP, or for heavy EPower plate modding you would probably prefer a thicker paste. I typically don't use any added flux, but it certainly makes your job easier.

There are many "rework flux" options but I have used both of these and I would highly recommend either:
RF771: https://www.kester.com/products/prod...71-rework-flux
RF741: https://www.kester.com/products/prod...41-rework-flux

You can find them on Amazon: https://www.amazon.com/Kester-RF741-...ct_top?ie=UTF8

FYI: These are "no clean" which means they are not electrically conductive so you can leave it on your PCB and it wont cause problems. However, I would always recommend cleaning your work after you are done with a small bristle brush (toothbrush works well) and alcohol.
