I use a point tip for everything. Soldering all metal RCAs like Cardas can be a b**** whatever tip you use.

Default Thanks

I have used a small screw driver tip and it works, but not all that well. I will try the point tip.

if you use a liquid flux and coat the surfaces 1st... the solder will flow like water :P
with any tip ...more heat = better

use as big a tip as you can fit
