No matter what soldering set you use I have found that one should order two (especially if they are inexpensive. Mine were about $40 each)! I ordered two in error but have found that having one set up with a fine tip and the other set up with a larger tip (for larger parts, coax connectors, etc.) allows me to continue working without having to let it cool down and change tips. Also, if one goes bad you still have the other. My first one went bad until one day the sun showed on the iron tip cord just right and it showed cat teeth marks. Now I have two again and the cat is not allowed in the shack.
Just my not so humble opinion,
