This pen nails it on every level. The design is slim and easy to use with three heat settings. Replacement parts are cheap and easy to obtain. Hits like an absolute champ. I’ve spent three times the price and the hit wasn’t any better. Blue setting is the best/use it 90% of the time. Red when I’m trying to burn out the last bit.
One single criticism: Pen has a small diameter base and is somewhat top heavy, so it tends to fall over when put down. Would be great if this had a flared base, or a removable pad like a torch. Pen works so well this issue is not a problem
