    Looking for a new soldering iron, I've used a csi 2901 for 5 years. The lead to the iron loses contact when in use so I'm looking to replace the whole station for something better.

    Which would you recommend?

    It's only the 951 I'm looking at I'm afraid, need the cartridge style tips. Also need a spatula tip for cleaning of bga sites.
