Default Your opinions on ERSA soldering irons.

I'm planing to buy some decent quality soldering iron. ERSA multitip series are about 30 euros. How good are they?

Thank you.

Smile Ersa Soldering Iron

Hi rendisha,
I use a Elsa all the time at home! I like it very much! At work I had to use a much more expensive Weller. Never got used to it!

Elso,
quite opposite with me, never got used to Ersa. Be it regulated or not.

I am quite fond of my Weller WSD 130.
The WSP 80 iron (80W) attached to it is as handy and abalnced as an expensive fountain pen. And the second iron, MLR-21 / 25W i just the right thing for very delicate work.
